  • (Research) Interests

    I'm interested in human cognition. More specifically, I'm interested in human memory, human perception and visual attention, sequential effects arising during task performance as well as their applied field of human-machine interaction.

    Within memory, I'm doing research on the processes involved in recognition memory. More specifically, I examine the processes differing between multiple recognition decisions and simple recognition decisions, via cognitive modeling. Additionally, I investigate the role of guessing during recognition decisions and the importance of mis-detection as a necessary process within recognition decisions.

    In another  line of research I focus on sequential effects occuring in different areas of cognitive psychology (e.g., visual attention, interference tasks, task-switching). My aim is to find common aspects of those phenomenon and ideally a common way to model these effects.

    Furthermore, to apply the knowledge about fundamental human cognition gained from the previous two projects, I'm also interested in human-machine interaction. More specifically, we aim to investigate the impact of vibration on cognitive performance.
