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.
