Research Interests

My research focusses on the intersection of geology and cognitive science, specifically how geology undergraduates use gestures and to explain and describe geologic concepts, features, and processes. We have established a discipline-specific taxonomy of the gestures and their functions that we observe geology undergraduates using both in field settings and non-field settings.
