Camila Alviar is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Music Cognition Lab studying how children and adults with and without developmental disabilities entrain to the rhythms of social interaction. Camila holds a PhD in Cognitive and Information Sciences from the University of California, Merced. Her graduate work focused on the dynamics of multimodal coordination during language use and their change as a result of discourse level variables, such as communicative goals and contextual constrains. Camila’s research interests also include the dynamics of interpersonal coordination under challenging communicative situations.
In her free time, Camila loves sharing time with loved ones and having stimulating conversations. She also enjoys trying new food, knitting, planting stuff, and cuddling with her cat.
