After obtaining a joint PhD in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and Computer Science with Dana Ballard and Mary Hayhoe at the Center for Visual Science at the University of Rochester in 2008, I started a postdoc at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies working with Jochen Triesch in the theoretical neuroscience group. Since 2009 I am a lecturer at the Goethe University, Frankfurt and since 2010 the principal investigator of the 'beliefs, representations, and actions group'. After a year as a substitute professor in the Institute of Cognitive Science at the University Osnabrück I am now an associate professor in the department of psychology at the Technical University Darmstadt.

My research interests revolve around the distinction between 'looking' and 'seeing' and how this distinction relates to vision in goal directed behavior. The aim is to better understand the full perception and action cycle in humans, i.e. how we use our perceptual systems actively during natural extended behavior to guide decisions and actions with our bodies. This leads to the study of how we use sensory input, specifically vision, form beliefs about the world by carrying out computations on the basis of our cognitive representations, and then employ decision making processes to act in goal directed behavior. To this end, I am currently using mainly three methodologies: tracking of human eye and body movements during extended visuomotor tasks in natural and virtual environments, building models of these tasks and implementing algorithms that learn how to solve these tasks in virtual agents, developing learning algorithms with an emphasis on the learning of sensory representations for actions.
