Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
Much of my research focuses on the perception and (artificial) synthesis of conversations, with particular emphasis on facial expressions. Increasingly, I am working in the field of image statistics, with an emphasis on what they can tell us about perception and how they can be used in computer graphics. I have also investigated issues in  sensorimotor adaptation, computational aesthetics, object recognition, postural control, and Virtual Reality.
