Fields of Study


I received my Psychologie Diplom (equivalent to an M.A.) from the University of Hamburg and my PhD from the University of Tübingen. After a postdoc at U of T, York University, and Western University, I started my position at UTSC in 2003. 
My research concerns the cognitive and neural bases of perception and action. Specifically, in my lab we study how the brain makes predictions about the world to optimize the ways in which it interacts with the world.
In my spare time, I enjoy listening to and playing music, traveling, and trying new foods.
