My research involves the study of hand gestures as a form of communication that can influence others. I have investigated the role that gestures play in misleading eyewitnesses during police interviews and how covert this process of nonverbal suggestion can be. Since completing my PhD on this topic, I have been interested in studying how information can be conveyed to others nonverbally across a variety of communicative situations (including interviews, in attraction and in marketing). Currently, I am also interested in how gestures can be used to detect deception in others, and how gesture behaviour changes in different scenarios.
