I’m a cognitive scientist interested in how our brains and bodies can possibly enable subjective conscious experience. In reality I study a very small subset of cognitive phenomena and how these are implemented in the brain. At the moment I work on furthering our understanding of decision making and, in particular, on confidence judgements. Other projects that I work (or worked) on include eye-moments and selection strategies, grid cells and their relation to attention. I use a large variety of methods, including computational modeling, eye-tracking, fMRI, MEG, electrophysiological recordings in monkeys and pure psychophysics. I’ve studied cognitive science at the University of Osnabrück and completed my PhD under supervision of Peter König (U. Osnabrück) and Elizabeth Buffalo (U. Washington, Seattle) in Osnabrück, Seattle and Atlanta.
