PhD (Cognitive Science)

Description of research and teaching

In everyday life we carry out many tasks that are apparently easy and simple, but in fact are underpinned by complex and sophisticated cognitive and neural mechanisms. The impressive adaptability of human perception and cognition is starkly revealed in artificial intelligence and robotics, where even tasks such as driving a car or simply walking down a path have turned out to be huge challenges. On the other hand, in expert performance we can observe learning and skill development at the edge of human cognitive and physiologicla capacity. My research aims to understand the cognitive and neural basis of human everyday and expert performance. Research methods combine contolled laboratory and simulator experiments, field experiments "in the wild", cognitive modelling and qualitative methods.
