Embodiment in action


On this website, one can find 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. 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.
