Research Description

Eva Wiese’s interests focus on research in social attention and embodied cognition and its application to social robotics and design thinking. With regard to social robotics, the idea is to unravel what sort of information humans use when judging the degree of intentionality underlying the actions of social agents (i.e., robots) and how attributing a mind to others influences attention, perception and performance. With regard to design thinking, she is interested in the role of embodied cognition involved in designing and in particular how perception and action processes interact during design thinking. In order to investigate these questions, she uses behavioral measures, eye tracking, and EEG.
