Workshop on Open Science

Elli Zey and I were invited to give a workshop about the Basics of Open Science to a graduate college located at the German University of Administrative Sciences in Speyer, Germany. We had a lot of fun and it was quite a challenge to design a workshop for such a diverse group of researchers. We covered topics such as the replication crisis in psychology, open access, open data, and open source. You can find our slides here.

Open Science Day 2020

Together with my colleagues from the Frankfurt Open Science Initiative, we organized the second Open Science Day at the Goethe University Frankfurt. The topic is Open Science in Teaching. We invited Tom Hardwicke and Flávio Azevedo as keynote speakers, as well as Karen Zentgraf and Tamara Heck to join a panel discussion moderated by Yee Lee Shing. We can’t wait and are soo looking forward! You can find just a little bit more information about the program on our poster here.

We started a journal club - and it’s amazing!

Elli Zey and I started a bi-weekly journal club called ReproducibiliTea. And no, we didn’t come up with this wonderful pun but Amy Orben did! Together with Sam Parsons and Sophia Crüwell she founded the first ReproducibiliTea in Oxford and now there are more than 50 ReproTea journal clubs distributed over the whole word! Within our sessions, we are discussing papers related to the replication crisis, open science, and related topics. It is open for everyone, from profs to Bachelor students, and so far it has been a lot of fun! Check out our schedule here, learn more about the concept of ReproducibiliTea here, and read this article by Amy Orben, why ReproducibiliTea is so special, here.

Poster presentation

At the European Conference on Visual Perception 2019, I gave my first poster presentation of my PhD! I received great feedback and am looking forward to continuing this project! In case you missed it or just want to have a look at my poster No difference in object memory after searching dynamic 3D and VR environments you can still find it here.


I am doing my PhD at the Scene Grammar Lab with Melissa Võ, located at the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main.

My PhD research is further linked to the SFB TRR 135 project “Cardinal Mechanisms of Perception”.

I am a Guest Researcher at the University of Amsterdam, where I continue working on my master thesis project.

My PhD position is funded by a Main-Campus-doctus scholarship awarded by the Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft.
