Forskning

Min forskningsinteresse er todelt. Jeg undersøker empirisk hvordan organismers atferd og deres miljø påvirker hverandre og er interessert i den konseptuelle bakgrunnen til atferdsvitenskap som naturvitenskap. Mine databaserte, i likhet med mine konseptuelle studier kretser rundt spørsmålet hvordan organismers fortløpende atferd og hendelser i deres omverden bør deles i meningsfulle analyseenheter.

Mitt empiriske arbeid undersøker hvordan man kan avgrense analyseenheter i en fortløpende strøm av verbalatferd. Jeg utvikler forskningsprosedyrer som skal muliggjøre en effektiv undersøkelse av voksenes språkbruk i samtaler som granskes som enheter med forskjellige kompleksitetsgrader.

Mine konseptuelle undersøkelser er rotfestet i en naturvitenskapelig forståelse av atferd. Jeg utforsker relasjonen mellom naturlig seleksjon og ontogenetisk seleksjon av atferd. Jeg arbeider i en molar-flerskala rammeverk som anser (verbal)atferd som en naturlig hendelse med variabel varighet. Jeg argumenterer for et valg av eksistensteoretisk og erkjennelseteoretisk rimelige analyseenheter.
