Research Interests

As a postdoctoral researcher, I investigate the mechanisms that allow us to imitate others. To that end, I study both behavioral and neurophysiological responses in infants and adults. I take a developmental approach to gain a deeper understanding in the mechanisms underlying phenomena observed in adults. Imitation often requires a translation from seen-but-unfelt into felt-but-unseen and as such, the topic is related to multisensory and sensorimotor integration, which are the broader fields I am interested in.
