I studied Psychology at the Ludwigs-Maximillians-University at Munich, Germany. During my my PhD at the Max-Planck-Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience in Munich and Leipzig I tried to uncover commonalities between the understanding of language and actions of other people, in a project with Wolfgang Prinz, Guenther Knoblich, Thomas Gunter and Angela D. Friederici, using electrophysiology (ERPs) and behavioural measures. After that I worked in a 5-year post-doc position in Steve Tipper's lab at Bangor University, Wales, UK to investigate embodied social cognition and how it is affected by attention, using both behavioural methodologies and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). I now work as a lectuerer at the University of Plymouth. I am interested in social perception, specifically how we understand and predict the actions of others.
