Research interests

My research investigates neuronal correlates associated with cognitive processes during emotional distraction using EEG, MEG, fNIRS and Eye Tracking.
I am interested in new approaches in signal processing as well as encoding and decoding approaches to better understand how our brain processes emotional stimuli during ongoing cognitive tasks not only in laboratory settings but also in our everyday life.
