Embodiment in action


I am an Associate Professor at the Institute of Sports Science, Leibniz University Hannover and head of the "Sports and Cognition"-group. 

On this website, I am providing information on my research and teaching, as well as some professional information to my person. For further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

My research is grounded on the concept of embodiment and focuses on two different topics: motor decision making and joint action. In this context, I am especially interested in the influence of age-related changes in cognitive and motor functioning on movement coordination. Here you can find what I have published in these fields.
