I’m a lecturer in social sciences at Loughborough University. I study conversation to understand how people do things together in everyday life. I’ve looked at how politicians shake hands, how couples dance, how people draw, evaluate art, and how we deal with miscommunication in interaction.
upcoming & recent:
- I gave a keynote at ECCA 2020 on “Three Meeting Points between Conversation Analysis and Artificial Intelligence“
- My current research project “Adept at Adaptation” asks how disabled people, personal assistants work together with virtual assistants.
