Research & About Me

Jenny's research interest include communication in the context of social and action dynamics. She is specifically interested in cognitive mechanisms that drive communication (successful and unsuccessful). She views communication as being richly affected by linguistic, psycholinguistic and social context that dynamically interact and influence adaptation to complex and novel conversational situations. Much of her research has focused on acoustic cues to emotional speech, perspective taking, and psycholinguistic cues to miscommunication. 

She is also the director of the MADI LAB, in which she conducts eye-tracking and behavioral research.
