Aktuelle Forschungsthemen

My research interests focus on the link between human perception and action. In particular, I am investigating how the goal of observed actions and sensorimotor experience can affect action coding and understanding in humans from the very first days of life to adulthood. Other interests involve perceptual decision making, multisensory integration, multisensory basis of body perception, the interplay between voluntary object-oriented actions and the multi-sensory coding of the space around us, and the role of multi-sensory feedback on sensorimotor learning.
