Gestures, speech, and learning from a dynamical, ecological perspective
As a researcher in Developmental Psychology, my main research interest lies in children’s gestures and speech as they learn new (cognitive) things. Rooted in dynamic systems theory and ecological psychology, I approach development as emerging from the coupling between child and environment over time, and learning as a transition between states. Such a transition is characterized by a decoupling and reorganization of a system, which also applies to children’s gestures and speech.
