Biographical note

I research multimodal interaction between humans and non-humans. My research, situated at the intersection of sociology, anthropology, and linguistics, focuses on the ethnomethodological study of embodied sensemaking practices in technology-supported interactional contexts. Through videographic techniques, I aim to understand how interaction is co-constructed by diverse participants through at-hand interactional resources, with a strong focus on the complex interplay between verbal and non-verbal action. My publications include research on human-computer interaction, embodied encounters in virtual reality, and telemediated communication.
