I am fascinated by social-cognitive development in early childhood and how this development shows in brain and behavior:

How do we learn to act and interact in the world? Which neurocognitive processes play a role for acting and interacting successfully in our environment and how do such processes emerge in early development? By studying the brain and behavior in infants, young children, and adults I strive to contribute to a better understanding of individual and joint action processes.

I currently conduct my research as a postdoctoral fellow in the Baby Research on Action, Interaction and Neurocognition Group with Prof. Sabine Hunnius. I am further collaborating with Prof. Amanda Woodward at the University of Chicago.
