I am fascinated by the computations that the brain carries out, when making in a decision and how these computations are influence by external factors (e.g. the value of a decision cue). A special interest lies on social decision-making, i.e. how our choices are affected by social information of others and how social decision-making strategies (competitive, cooperative, altruistic, observational) change the underlying valuation process.

I am interested in understanding how we represent other humans’ mental states (mentalizing). I use EEG hyperscanning and computational modeling to approach this topic. To gain additional information from hyperscanning in comparison to single person EEG, we developed an interactive paradigm that requires a continuous representation of the mental processes of the other person.

I am interested in how the brain processes cross-modal integration and congruence. My research project is investigating how semantic congruence between an visual image and an auditory sound affects multi-sensory integration in the human brain, which I am investigating with fMRI.

I am interested in investigating the interaction of multisensory integration and value-based decision-making using multivariate pattern analysis of fMRI. In particular, I am interested how unisensory pattern are modified through value-based learning and how that propagates to cue integration in multimodal brain regions.

I am interested in how the reliability of cue information affects the valuation and decision-making process. Furthermore, I investigate how hierarchical prediction errors are represented in the human brain.

I am interested in the computational and neural underpinnings of altruistic and other virtuous behavior in humans and how that unfolds in a social context.
