Research interests

I study normal and impaired visual word recognition using neurocognitive techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging, electroencephalography, eye movement recording, and computational modeling. I am interested in ecologically valid paradigms that expand the range of experimental settings in which the neural correlates of cognitive processes can be recorded. My research group focuses on coregistration of eye movements and EEG and eye movements and fMRI. In addition, I am fascinated by human fallacies such as the reverse inference fallacy or the exponential growth bias. Recently, we have been working on ontology-based knowledge systems that allow objective classification of neurocognitive datasets (check out Austrian NeuroCloud).
