Research interests

I have a scientific background in Technical Biology. During my master´s I specialized on neurobiology and psychology. I always had a keen interest in human perception and behavior. Therefore I am very interested in the human visual system and visual perception.


I studied my bachelor´s and master´s in Technical Biology at the University of Stuttgart. I wrote my master thesis about visual attention to different food cues measured with mobile Eye Tracking. Now I work as a doctoral student at the Experimental Cognitive Science group.
