My main task is to work on the COMPAS project. The project is part of the DFG-funded priority program Active Self. Here we are developing a computational cognitive model of the control of situated action in an embodied cognition architecture. The model has a hierarchy of several higher cognitive and sensorimotor levels, from whose interaction the sense of agency emerges. The goal of the second phase of the COMPAS project is to investigate implicit measures of Sense of Agency and hypothesis-driven modeling in the context of multitasking.

Additionally, I support Nele Russwinkel and Linda Heimisch in teaching.
