His research lines and interests are:
1. Event perception: spatial and temporal determinants for the visual perception of events; intuitive physics; cognitive representations of motion; representational analogues of physical invariants.
2. Multisensory perception of gravitational information: internal models of gravity; visual-vestibular interactions; representational gravity; visual perception of gravitational motion; verticality perception; perceptual upright.
3. Perception-action coupling: smooth pursuit eye movements; perception-for-action; visuo-motor coupling in the perception of events.
