Kurzinfo

My main research interests are in the area of haptic perception and the interplay of touch and vision. Specifically, I investigate the sensori-motor control loop in active touch, the perception of softness, emotional-motivational aspects and the perception of time.

My goal is to study information processing in active touch with regard to fundamental particularities and with regard to commonalities with other sensory systems and to apply this knowledge.
