In particular, have a look at my Zettelkasten—a collection of facts (and propositions) I drew from papers I read while working on my PHD.


Research Interests

Past Research Interests




Current Activities

Writing my Thesis, meddling in other people's (scientific) domains.

Apart from actually developing models of the superior colliculus I am also cooperating with Erik Strahl and Jorge Dávila-Chacón in building an audio-visual virtual reality lab for robots. The goal of this is to create an environment in which we can present complex, yet highly controlled multi-sensory stimuli to our robots and first train the bio-inspired software we develop and then study its performance. A video of building the physical infrastructure of this lab and a 3D animation of it can be found here ("Building up the VR Robot Training Lab" and "The new lab - a VR Robot Training Lab").

There's been some progress on that.
