I was a post-doc with Kevin O’Regan in Paris after completing my PhD in Cognitive Science with Peter König in Osnabrück, Germany. I am interested in embodied cognitive science, in particular the sensorimotor approach to awareness. For this I’ve demonstrated psychophysically that humans can augment their spatial awareness with a “magnetic sense”, as predicted by embodied cognition (introducing the hearSpace headset, Schumann & O’Regan, Scientific Reports, 2017), and investigated sensory augmentation also with neuroimaging methods (using the feelSpace belt, König, Schumann et al, 2016, PlosOne). Complementary to this, I’ve studied natural visual attention in spontaneous behaviour outside the lab using mobile eye tracking. I’m excited about predictive processing as a framework for how the ‘inside’ aspects of the nervous system relate to embodied cognition and sensorimotor theory in explaining perception and consciousness.
