Facial expressions, vocalizations, and body movements are social signals that communicate our emotions and intentions. The EB Lab studies how the dynamic ebb and flow of these signals coordinates interactions and enables social connection. We also examine how the social environment shapes them. We use a wide range of methods, including acoustic analysis, automated facial expression coding, perceptual judgment tasks, dyadic interactions, social network analysis, and crowd movement tracking.
