In my research I investigate how people perceive and represent their (visual) environment. My research focuses on event cognition, visual working memory and visual attention. In my work on event cognition, I investigate both factors influencing the segmentation of the dynamic environment into events and the cognitive consequences of the representation of events, such as filling in causally matching information that was actually missing in the environment (event completion). With regard to visual working memory, I am primarily interested into two aspects: The cognitive offloading of content and processes into external tools such as tablets and the representation and updating of contextual information in working memory, such as in the form of spatial configurations. I also explore how people control their attention in their dynamic environment both by studying Multiple Object Tracking and the distribution of participants’ eye movements.
