Task constraints on multimodal interpersonal coordination and task performance:
Effects of task goals and the partners’ relative body orientation
Biosketch of Alexia Galati
Dr. Alexia Galati is an Assistant Professor in Psychological Science at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she directs the Cognition in Interaction Lab. She holds a B.A. (Honors) in Psychology from Stanford University, an M.A. in the Social Sciences from The University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from SUNY Stony Brook. From 2010–2016 she was a postdoctoral researcher at the Experimental Psychology Lab at the University of Cyprus, and from 2016–2018 she was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow at UC Merced’s Cognitive and Informational Sciences unit.
Dr. Galati studies perspective-taking in socially and environmentally situated contexts. Her work examines how language users keep track of their conversational partners’ perspective, how they adapt their linguistic and non-linguistic behavior to coordinate with their partners, and how successful that coordination ultimately is. She uses a variety of methods, including behavioral experiments, discourse analysis, eye-tracking, mouse-tracking, perceptual paradigms, and virtual reality technology.
