Short info

My research focuses on the bidirectional interaction of visual perception and eye movements. On the one hand, I investigate how a seamless and stable representation of the world is reconstructed despite the large gaps in sensory information and the dynamic changes due to eye movements. On the other hand, I investigate how eye movements are continuously optimized to support perceptual and behavioural tasks.

My long-term goal is to understand how the brain actively acquires, weighs and reconstructs visual information to to efficiently interact with the environment. I use psychophysics, eye tracking, EEG and computational modelling.
