Biography

I am a Professor in the Psychology Department at Bournemouth University. Prior to coming to Bournemouth in 2009, I held principle investigator and post doc positions at the Cognitive Science Centre at Freiburg University (Germany), a CNRS in Paris (France), a Max Planck Institute in Tübingen (Germany) and the Cognitive Neuroscience Department in Tübingen (Germany). I received my Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2004 from the University of Tübingen (Germany)

Research

My research focuses on navigation and wayfinding, fundamental behavioural problems that involve multiple cognitive components and complex information processing. In order to address these issues I use an inter-disciplinary approach combining different methods such as behavioural navigation experiments, virtual reality techniques, eye-tracking, and cognitive modelling.
