About me

I studied Psychology in Chemnitz, and later in Tuebingen. There I worked as an research assistant at the MPI for Biological Cybernetics (Cyberneum). After conducting a short research project for Alain Berthoz at the College de France in Paris I started my PhD in the SFB in July 2009. I am interested in human and animal spatial cognition, especially in the development and change of human spatial representations, cognitive maps and spatial inferences. Furthermore, I am interested in human motor control and its relationship to spatial cognition.
