My work focuses on aspects related to human sensorimotor control, such as somatosensory processing on moving limbs and eye movements for action. To this end, I investigate tactile perception during hand movements, gaze control for action, and fast responses to visual perturbations. Besides that, I also have a keen interest in the sensorimotor control of older adults; this line of my research has been funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
