I am a cognitive science doctoral student at the University of Potsdam and a programming enthusiast. My research focuses on computational modelling, psycholinguistics, methodology and statistics.

Profile picture

I am a cognitive scientist, mostly interested in cognitive/experimental psychology, and psycholinguistics. After having completed my Bachelor of Science (Psychology) at the University of Potsdam (supervised by Reinhold Kliegl) and my Master of Science (Psychology, Cognition and Brain Science) at the University of Victoria (supervised by Stephen Lindsay and Michael Masson), I am back at the University of Potsdam as a PhD student since early 2018.

In my current primary research project, I am exploring the interaction of eye-movement control and sentence processing in reading (CRC 1287 B03, supervised by Ralf Engbert and Shravan Vasishth). Using Bayesian model fitting techniques, I look at how different reading patterns allow us to infer how the underlying cognitive processes differ between people and reading conditions.

Moreover, I’m interested in open science practices, methodology, statistics, and computer programming. For example, I developed and actively maintain the packages hypr and designr for the open-source statistics software R.
