Engineering Psychology and Applied Cognition
My research focuses on the understanding of perception, attention and information processing in the context of active vision. Therefore, I investigate eye movements, especially the behavior of visual fixations in scene perception but also in interactive task settings. I focus on the understanding of the complex eye movement behavior for instance by linking eye movement patterns to distinct processing modes. I am also interested to integrate the findings into applied settings such as employing changes in fixation behavior to the recognition of hazards in driving and developing gaze-directed control and analysis paradigms in social interaction.
