My name is Sebastian Kahl and I am a research assistant and PhD student at the CITEC (Cognitive Interaction Technology) at Bielefeld University. I work in the Social Cognitive Systems Group led by Prof. Dr-Ing. Stefan Kopp.
My main research interests lie in the question on how humans form dynamic meaning representations within and without the context of a conversation.
In my thesis with the topic "Social Motorics", I investigate the intra-personal coordination of mentalizing and mirroring processes in the so-called human social brain, as afforded by inter-personal coordination in humans. To that end, I develop a probabilistic and hierarchical model for embodied virtual agents that grounds perception, production and inter-agent coordination on principles of predictive coding, anticipation, and close coupling of perception and production processes.
