Oculomotor control and Express Saccades

Research interest

My research interest involves cognitive processing and eye movements. I have a professional background in artificial intelligence, theater and sailing. My hobby/ specialization is building experimental setups (e.g. simultaneous audiovisual stimulus presentation, eye tracking in an MRI scanner, eye tracking mount for infants)
