About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Cognitive Systems group and a principal investigator of the project R1-[ImageSpace] "Mental representations of spatial environments" in the Spatial Cognition Research Center SFB/TR 8. Combining methods and insights from computer science and cognitive psychology my research focuses on establishing a deeper understanding of various cognitive abilities in mechanistic terms.
