General

I joined the Aston Brain Centre and the School of Life and Health Sciences in May 2013, having spent the previous 7.5 years at the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging and the School of Psychology at Glasgow University.
I obtained my Diploma in Psychology from Mannheim University in 1995. I also finished my PhD in Mannheim (1999) while working at the Collaborative Research Centre "Situated Artificial Communicators" at Bielefeld University. I was then employed as a researcher at the Wolfson Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Wales, Bangor and subsequently in the MEG (Magnetoencephalography) Laboratory at Duesseldorf University before coming back to the UK.

Research interests

I employ MEEG experiments (evoked responses, oscillations, and synchronisation) as well as behavioural studies to investigate the following topics: Visual working memory, selective attention, the mirror system, and embodied (social) cognition. Recently, I have developed research interests in Autism, Compulsive Checking, and drug-related memory biases. I am member of the Aston Brain Centre (ABC) and the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Group (CAN).
