My research mainly focuses on children’s hand movements, gestures and speech when they learn about Science & Technology tasks. Inspired by complex dynamical systems theory and ecological psychology, I research how children’s hand movements and speech change over time, within a task. Furthermore, I investigate how learning emerges from children’s interactions with their physical and social environment. I research both individual and dyadic learning. I’m an Assistant Professor at the Psychology Department of the University of Groningen.
