Main Focus

I am a master student here at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in the Human Perception, Cognition, and Action group.  Specifically, I work with Sally Lingenauger and study the influence of the body on the scaling of perceived extents.  Using virtual reality and stereodisplays to manipulate the body and its ability to interact with the virtual environment to access how this may influence the perception of sizes and distance.
