Full research profile


Starting with Biology, I obtained my undergraduate degrees from the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg (Germany) and the Universität Bremen (Germany). I then moved to the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland) for a PhD on non-retinotopic aspects of visual perception under the supervision of Michael Herzog. After my PhD, I took a first postdoctoral position at the Université Paris Descartes (France), where I worked with Pascal Mamassian on multisensory decision making. Before I moved to St Andrews in 2013, I had a short, second postdoctoral position with Marianne Maertens at the Technische Universität Berlin (Germany).
