Forschungsinteressen

Menschen haben die beeindruckende Fähigkeit zu planen, sich Ziele zu setzen und diesen Zielen entsprechend zu handeln. Doch häufig läuft die Zielerreichung nicht automatisch ab, sondern erfordert besondere Anstrengungen. Typischerweise wird angenommen, dass unser kognitives System über dezidierte Kontrollfunktionen verfügt, um adaptives Verhalten zu ermöglichen.

Das Ziel meiner Forschung ist es, die kognitiven Grundlagen und Mechanismen menschlicher Handlungskontrolle zu verstehen. Zwei Forschungsbereiche charakterisieren vor allem meine Arbeit: Zum einen untersuche ich wie mentale Ziele in Handlungen übersetzt werden. Zum anderen interesst mich, wie Handlungen angepasst werden, wenn es zu Schwierigkeiten in der Zielerreichung kommt. Um auch die motivationalen Grundlagen von Handlungskontrolle besser zu verstehen, nimmt dabei der Einfluss von Affekt und Belohnung eine wichtige Rolle in beiden Forschungsbereichen ein.
