Who I Am

My research primarily focuses on the influence of eye direction and facial expression on social interaction, as well as the modulation of fixation patterns in emotion recognition. Utilizing EEG techniques (ERPs, frequency tagging) and drift-diffusion models, I investigate the underlying neural dynamics of cognitive processing in these areas. Through my work, I aim to unravel the intricate mechanisms involved in facial emotion recognition and cognitive processes. I am actively committed to promoting open science and have a strong interest in initiatives aimed at fostering transparency and collaboration. With a deep curiosity for social cognition, I strive to contribute new insights to the scientific community.
