Degrees/Diplomas: PhD in Physics, 1996, Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich, Germany
Training Area: Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience
Research Interests: Neural signal processing
The general area of interest is how temporal information of natural stimuli is encoded and processed by the brain. Experimental techniques focus on interpreting and modulating brain activity in humans non-invasively using electro-encephalography and trans-cranial electrical stimulation, in short: "reading" and "writing" the brain with electric fields. The work is often coupled with auditory and visual psychophysics and always incorporates computational or mathematical models.
