Research interests

My research focuses on the decoding of neuronal correlates and dynamics associated with cognitive and affective states. Thereby, I explore the neurophysiological signatures from multimodal sensors, e.g., EEG and fNIRS data.

The understanding of correlates linked to cognitive and affective states as well as their interaction are especially relevant for mental state recognition and neuro-adaptive closed-loop system.
