I’m a PhD student in the Psychology of Information Processing group at the Centre for Cognitive Science, TU Darmstadt.

I am interested in probabilistic models of perception and action in naturalistic sequential tasks. To understand the uncertainties, intrinsic costs of behavior, and subjective internal models involved in these tasks, I use computational modeling techniques including inverse optimal control and Bayesian inference.
