Institute: ZiF (Center for interdisciplinary Research), Bielefeld University, Bielefeld, Germany

Fellow of the ZiF research group "Competition and Priority Control in Mind and Brain: New Perspectives from Task-Driven Vision"


Katharina Weiß studied psychology at the University of Bielefeld, Germany. In 2012 she received a PhD (Dr. phil.) in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Paderborn, Germany with a doctoral thesis about visual attention and temporal misperceptions, especially the prior-entry-effect. During and after her PhD studies she worked at the University of Paderborn and the Leuphana University Lüneburg on projects concerning visual attention.

Current Main Research Interests

Katharina's main research interests revolve around time perception and (visual) attention. She is particularly interested in temporal misperceptions and the role of attention in such misperceptions. In the past she has primarily used psychophysical methods such as temporal order judgments and simultaneity judgments for investigating these topics. She plans to use other techniques, as for instance eye tracking.
