Welcome

I’m a postdoctoral researcher currently working on how we predict and perceive the sensory consequences of our own actions (see Research). I did my PhD at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain with Philipp Sterzer and Felix Blankenburg, where I worked on motion perception using fMRI and multivoxel pattern analysis. Then I moved to Marburg for a long postdoc in the SFB/TRR 135 “Cardinal mechanisms of perception” with Tilo Kircher and Benjamin Straube. During that time I’ve worked on many projects investigating action predictions using psychophysics and fMRI. Since November 2019 I’m on my own DFG grant in Glasgow, where I’ll work together with Lars Muckli and aim to further investigate predictive processes using layer-specific fMRI.
