My research focuses on the cognitive processes involved in creative musical interaction. I am especially interested in how creative collaboration unfolds in the context of skilled music ensemble performance, when predictability and coordination must be balanced with flexibility and spontaneity. To address this question I run experiments investigating ensemble musicians' communicative behaviour; in particular, their body gestures and visual attention. I also look at how this behaviour is perceived by others (co-performers or audience members).
