Research
The goal of my research is to understand perceptual processing of multiple sources of sensory information. In particular, I investigate what are the temporal properties of multisensory perception.

Perceptual theories usually consider a steady-state situation, but in reality the information we pick up from the environment is continuously varying: objects move unpredictably, signals appear and disappear, sensory noise changes, and our sensory system adapts to the sensory stimuli. Nevertheless, the perceptual system can combine information even when the conditions of stimulation are not stable over time, but it is not clear whether this makes a difference for the theoretical accounts of perception. One can discover what are the characteristics of the perceptual system only by using stimuli that contain such natural-occurring changes.

Subjective timing is also an open window from which to investigate perception. Perceptual time is subject to distortion and seldom corresponds to objective time. For example, event timing is not perceived consistently across modalities, it is influenced by our actions, it changes depending on previous stimulation, and it is also affected by the status of the observer. These influences can be exploited to investigate how multimodal percepts are created and what are the temporal constraints in the integration mechanism.
