What we do

What makes us deeply connect on a human level? What makes us really understand one another, and interact productively? What makes interactions transformative, and what makes them conflictual? What happens in our bodies when we connect? How can human connection impact mental and physical health?

The work in this lab aims draws inspiration from many subjective approaches to communication, and performs rigorous empirical testing to clarify the effective mechanisms, and thus contribute to building the next generation of human connection frameworks.
