Initially my focus was on the cognitive and neural underpinnings of dance, but over time my research has shifted to more general questions regarding art, aesthetics and the brain. In recent years my research has moved towards the intersection of cognitive science, AI and philosophy.
A selection of my publications.

A brief introduction to what I have termed cognitive dance improvisation, whereby movements are determined by rules, techniques or directives.
Recent advances in AI have breathed new life into my dream of creating a robot or an avatar capable of improvising a sequence of movements.
