Welcome! I am Naomi Nota, a cognitive science PhD candidate in the Communication in Social Interaction group based at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics as well as the Donders Centre for Cognition and Behaviour, Radboud University, The Netherlands. I am currently investigating how visual bodily signals contribute to language processing by analysing corpora, and using behavioural and neurocognitive measures with VR. I believe studying language processing in a conversational and multimodal interaction context is essential to explore the bigger picture of what constitutes human communication. Additionally, I have worked on sentence reading in bilingual children.
You can either find me at one of my offices or at academic conferences. I also teach courses, and regularly attend outreach activities or write blogs on MPI TalkLing to communicate science to the wider audience. My work has received some attention in the media. In my spare time I enjoy making art, which sometimes comes in handy when portraying experimental setups.
