Embodiment in action


On this website, information on the research and further activities of the "Sports and Cognition"-group at the Institute of Sports Science, Leibniz University Hannover, as well as some professional information to my person are provided. For further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Our research is grounded on the concept of embodiment and focuses on two main topics: motor decision making and joint action. In this context, we are interested, among other aspects, in the influence of age-related changes in cognitive and motor functioning on movement coordination. In addition and in support of open science efforts, we are active in the field of research data management.

Article published in the Journal of Applied Sport and Exercise Psychology

Open Science practices have become well established in recent years. In a now published position paper, we argue that particularly Open Data holds great potential for empirical research in sports science, and sport and exercise psychology in particular and describe current developments within the German sports science community.
