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.


In my PhD-project, I focus on cognitive control mechanisms that operate in face of emotional information. The main goal is to unravel under which conditions cognitive control processes generalize across emotional domains.

In another research line, we are interested how cognitive mechanisms are related with controlling and maintaining body balance. Here, we test subjects performing cognitive tasks while standing on a force platform, which measure changes of postural stability.
