Research overview

I am a cognitive neuroscientist (Diplom in Biophysics and PhD in Psychology) and a classically trained pianist (LLCM in Piano Performance), studying different aspects of attention and performance in humans. I am specifically interested in the processes that underlie our ability to plan and control our actions, using both behavioural and electrophysiological approaches. I am also interested in how these processes change as a function of expertise (e.g., in groups with high levels of motor skills such instrumental musicians), normal aging and psychological illness.
