Main Focus

I am currently a member of the Social and Spatial Cognition Group in Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (started 1 of October). I work as a Post Doctoral researcher in the project of Collaborative Spatial Problem Solving, under the supervision of and .

My research interests lie within the field of spatial cognition, and especially on how people encode, maintain and update information aquired from perception, memory and other modalities such as language. Among others i am interested in spatial perspective taking, as well as in the cognitive mechanisms that underlie problem solving in collaborative tasks.

Collaborative Spatial Problem Solving

In everyday life we come across various problems that can be either simple or complex. Research shows that solving a problem with another person might be more efficient than solving it individually. However, the cognitive mechanisms that underlie collaborative problem solving still remain unknown. The goal of the project is to examine the representations, the memory load and the strategies that collaborators use in a 3D puzzle task.

Problem Solving Task

Participants will work individually and in pairs to solve a 3D Rubik's cube type puzzle presented in VR settings.

Navigation Task

Participants in this task will have to navigate in a virtual city that can be viewed only from top. Their task will be to collect all objects placed at various locations around the city, as fast as possible. Participants will carry out the task either individually or in pairs.
