RECENT AWARDS & RESEARCH GRANTS


  • DFG grant: 'Dynamic shifts from working memory to long-term memory control of visual selection' (Dec 2016)

  • DFG grant: 'Adaptive Attentional Orienting to Multisensory Events' (Jul 2015)

  • 'Select-Speaker Award' - elected by the Psychonomic Society (Nov 2014)

  • 'Junior Researcher in Residence' - awarded by the Center for Advanced Studies, LMU Munich (Apr 2014)



Lateralized Attention Workshop

In March 2015, the 1st edition of the 'Lateralized Attention Workshop' (LAW) took place at the Center for Advanced Studies (CAS-LMU) in Munich. The workshop featured a selected group of leading experts in the field who provided, according to my view, inspiring new insights into the neural mechanisms of visual search and selective attention. You can view the program (including abstracts) here.
