Natalia Morozova, MA
I am a PhD candidate affiliated with the ACQDIV lab at the University of Zurich and the Joint Action research group of the NCCR Evolving Language. Together with other members of the Joint Action group, we try to understand the evolutionary origins of language by comparing joint action coordination in human and non-human primates. The goal of my PhD research is to identify the universal behavioural patterns of joint action coordination in human children across culturally diverse naturalistic settings. By collecting observational and experimental data, I aim to investigate the ontogenetic development of multimodal coordination devices, primarily in the context of social play.
