Research Interests

My research focuses on the computational and neural basis of human perception and cognition. I use behavioural measures, electroencephalography, functional magnetic resonance imaging and multivariate pattern analysis to investigate how humans allocate attention and make decisions on the basis of a flexible, constantly changing environment. Further lines of research are concerned with psychophysical and neural mechanisms underlying interval duration perception and integration of information from different perceptual streams, with a special focus on integration over time.
