Research interests

After studying psychology and computer science at the TU Darmstadt and working in the lab as a research assistant, I decided to stay and pursue a PhD. During my undergrad years, I worked on the visual control of locomotor behavior. Currently, I am interested in how our environment shapes our perception and behavior. My research focuses on how the statistics of our visual environment are efficiently encoded in neural representations as prior beliefs and how these lead to biases in perceptual decision-making.
