In 2007, I started working with Tobias Heed and Thérèse Collins as a student assistant. After visiting Salvador Soto-Faraco‘s lab (Barcelona, Spain) in 2009 for half a year, I graduated from the University of Hamburg in psychology in 2011. I have been working in Tobias Heed’s lab since 2011 as a member of Project B1 of the DFG-funded Research Collaborative (Sonderforschungsbereich) SFB936. My research interest is focused on how the visual system influences the processing of touch. To this end I investigate behavioral responses and modulations of oscillatory EEG activity in sighted and congenitally blind participants.

Oscillatory activity reflects differential use of spatial reference frames by sighted and blind individuals in tactile attention.
