My general research interests include deliberation, conflict management, social identity, culture, communication design, and the coordination of actions in personal and public contexts. Of particular interest is how a specific form of interactivity is constructed through the use of language, argument, interactional resources, in view of different constraints the interaction imposes; what is the interrelationship of reasoning and activity, how this activity is constitutive of identity, and what are culturally-specific and context-specific practices. My recent research investigated the construction of deliberative activity in the course of dispute mediation.
