Research interests

How do we perceive the world around us? How do we make sense of it? Which processes take place in our minds? Do we have control over these processes? Are there ways to highjack some of these processes and create visible deviations from our normal behavior?
Those are the questions that made me chose Cognitive Science as my course of studies. Working at this department allows me to look at those questions from different perspectives:
  • One of my tasks is to conduct behavioral experiments, mostly based on questions concerning our visual system and how it processes information.
  • I am also collecting and analyzing EEG data. This is very interesting both in terms of the content and methods.
Another fascinating area (which is more a kind of leisure activity, because it is simple, fun and interesting) is hypnosis and its neuroscientific and psychological explanation/point of view. If you want to know more about or discuss this topic, don't hesitate to send me a mail.


I started my studies in 2015/2016.
I am a student assistant at this department since september 2017.
Currently, I am writing my bachelor's thesis in Cognitive Science in Tübingen. I am looking into alpha oscillations in the visual cortex (↗EEG) and their connection to our performance in certain tasks.

Further stuff

I would say I have at least some experience in analyzing EEG data in EEGLab/ERPLab, as well as programming in Matlab. I also happen to use R and Python for different things (mostly data analysis and data visualization).
I do most of this stuff in Sublime Text (thanks to Sascha!), so if you want to know about my setup of those programs within Sublime, send me a mail or check out my work on GitHub. Of course I can also help you if you come across problems within R, EEGLab/ERPLab or Matlab itself.
If you manage to find typos, please let me know.
