Research Associate, Biological Psychology and Neuroergonomics, Technische Universität, Berlin
I am a research and teaching assistant in the lab of Biological Psychology and Neuroergonomics at the Technische Universität Berlin. Acquiring background knowledge in mathematical methods and coding during a combined vocational training and degree program I got a B.Sc. in Scientific Programming in 2009. Building on that I gained extra knowledge in psychology and neural information processing during studying Technical Mathematics (M.Sc., 2012). With increasing interest in natural human cognition I worked with EEG as a student assistant in the neurocognitive psychology group at Humboldt University of Berlin. Practicing martial arts and climbing for years I see a strong tie between brain and body. Thus the relation of behavioral and brain states concerns me personally and professionally. During the conference I would like to discuss state of the art questions and issues in the field of the neuroscience of cognition and action in naturalistic and dynamic environments as those are my focus both in research and teaching. I consider the interchange of experience and active discussion with researchers from different disciplines as a good way to enrich my and other fields of research.
