Research Interests

I am an experimental psychologist with research interests in cognitive psychology and psychology of language. My specific areas of research are the following:

Discourse processing and pragmatics

Experimental studies of communication strategies (e.g., how people go about fulfilling their communicative goals).

Figurative language

How (and why) do people communicate using nonliteral means, such as with irony or hyperbole?

Conversational alignment

What causes speakers and listeners to adopt each others' point of view?

Computer-mediated communication

How do mediums like e-mail, texts, and tweets affect the communication process?
