I’m a researcher at the Institute of Experimental Psychology at Regensburg University. I got my PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (Department of Neuropsychology, Leipzig) where I investigated ‘the impact of speaker information on language processing’.
My current research focuses on behavioral and neural mechanisms of social interaction and communication in- and outside of Virtual Reality. I’m also interested in the effects of social context on emotional learning and communication.
I’m using a wide range of experimental and neuroscientific methods (Virtual Reality, EEG, fMRI and other psychophysiological measures) and I’m very interested in combining methodical approaches, e.g. combining Virtual Reality paradigms with psychophysiological measures. My goal is to develop interactive ‘closed loop’ paradigms that allow for highly immersive social interactions in VR in order to (1) study behavioral and neural responses in these contexts and (2) apply them in clinical settings.
Recently, I started to engage with Open Science and Computational Reproducibilty and I’m happy to implement these approaches in my research.
