How do our bodies create and experience meaning?

This is the question that drives my work, sometimes to unexpected places like decision-making in monogamous relationships, the environmental impact of having habits, the importance of misunderstanding, and methodological concerns in coding interactional data, as well as a variety of considerations of how co-speech hand gestures function in human cognition and communication. (Most research available here.)

Written with Ezequiel Di Paolo and Hanne De Jaegher, Linguistic Bodies: The Continuity Between Life and Language (MIT, 2018) is the fullest articulation to date of my working answer to this question (or at least a framework for further pursuits). In November 2019 we made these video overviews of the book [1] [2].
