    Research Interests

        • Looking for a post-doc abroad.***
    I am interested in the perceptual processes that guide movement. My experiments are all behavioural by nature, typically the participant is provided with a stimulus (such as a touch) and reports on what they feel through various methods (such as pointing). I conduct experiments on touch localization, body representations, and the sense of heaviness. I am interested in contributing to research on other proprioceptive topics, in particular the senses of body ownership and agency. In the future I would like to investigate how our perceptual experience remains stable even with changes to the size and shape of our body and the dynamics of our surrounds.
