Research Interests

How do children learn about their environment? Where do they start, on what basis do they choose what to explore and learn about next? How do interests form and how do children differ between each other regarding all these processes? My research interests include fundamental mechanisms of infant development such as active exploration, learning and individual characteristics. I address these topics using my extensive training in psychological infant research with multiple methodologies (e.g. Gaze contingent Eye tracking, EEG) and complex modelling approaches.
