Our research focuses on how humans perceive touch, construct an understanding of the body, plan actions in response to touch, and choose the body part with which we perform this action. We use a variety of methods to advance our projects, and have committed to Open Science. The group started as an Emmy Noether group at Hamburg University, funded by the German Research Foundation, and has since transitioned into a regular professorship at Bielefeld University.
We’ve summarized our work in several reviews. If you’d like to get an overview over what we do, take a look at these papers:
Towards explaining spatial touch perception: weighted integration of multiple location codes

Tactile remapping: from coordinate transformation to integration in sensorimotor processing
