Current research interests

I'm interested in social interaction, specifically as it relates to when and how we attribute psychological states to each other. As part of this I'm thinking about culturally specific conventions of interactions and how these influence the way that we categorise and (mis)understand people. Additionally I have interests in compensation in developmental disorders, particularly how we measure it and the cognitive mechanisms involved.
