Short info

I have always been thrilled by people’s capability to achieve rather unlikely action effects like reliably hitting a small target with a thrown object despite substantial variability in their movement system. With my research I try to reveal strategies in human motor control and learning which enable such extraordinary feats. In a second line of research, I also study how motor-cognitive dual task interference changes when being extensively trained.

In both lines of research, we primarily look at behavioral measures like force parameters and kinematic data. In recent years this approach has more and more been complemented by measurements of muscle (EMG) and brain activity (EEG, fNIRS).
