Main Areas of Research

- quantitative models of elementary cognitive processes (multisensory integration, cognitive control)

- measurement and analysis of reaction times (eye movements)

- modeling choice behavior (random utility theory)

- measurement of dissimilarity (dissimilary cumulation theory)

- graph-theoretic approaches (tree structures)

- speech recognition (hearing aids)
