JLheadshotI am a Freigeist Fellow and head of the Human Perception and Action Lab at the Centre for Tactile Internet of the TU Dresden. I am also a current member of the Junge Akademie.

Our research focus is on the cognitive-computational basis of human perception and action, with an emphasis on the mechanisms of how body models are constructed and updated (in particular, in virtual environments and during human-machine-interactions). We use virtual reality together with state-of-the-art sensors (e.g., data gloves) and interventions (TMS, pharmacology) for experimental manipulation, and look at how these manipulations affect behaviour, brain activity (using fMRI and M/EEG), and subjective experience together. We use computational modelling to gain a mechanistic understanding of these data.
