My research focuses on social cognition, specifically how atypical visual perception influences cognitive development and social interactions. I am interested in understanding how people control their movements with respect to what is perceived. Moreover, I am keen to understand how deficits in cognitive processes influence daily interactions. To achieve these goals the research involves the use of virtual reality as a tool to control environmental characteristics and visual stimuli while using motion tracking to assess and identify behavioural variances.
