My current research investigates the nonverbal correlates of status and attraction. In the past, I have explored the effect of intrusive interruption in conversation, in addition to the nonverbal reactions of targets of interruption. I am currently investigating whether people alter their voices as a function of their conversational partners. Specifically, my colleagues and I are attempting to determine if romantic attraction causes us to alter our voices in ways that increase our mate value to others. In addition, I am interested in the functions of gossip and how gossipers are perceived by others.
