Research projects


DFG Priority Program SPP 1772 "Human performance under multiple cognitive task requirements: From basic mechanisms to optimized task scheduling"

Dynamic Conflict Management: Using performance monitoring to guide stable adjustment in task performance and flexible task selection in self-organized multitasking environmen.



 Subject of my PhD is the interaction of cognition and emotion. In behavioural experiments we investigate how taskperformance in cognitive control tasks and emotional distraction mutually interfere. In a series of experiments, we explore how body posture is influenced by both, cognition and emotion and how cognition and emotion may be influenced by body posture.
