The Human Interaction Lab explores the fundamentals of naturalistic human conversation such as turn-taking, agency in social interaction, gesture and how these methods relate to formal models, experiments and theories of cognitive and psychological processes.

Our methodological approach proposes a fusion between experimental methods in psychology and conversation analysis as part of an effort to improve the reliability of psychological science, especially in the study of language and social interaction.
