LEAD Graduate School & Research Network

Babette Bühler

I conduct research at the intersection between education research, psychology and computer science. Currently, my research focuses on the automated detection of mind-wandering in learning situations, employing computer vision, eye tracking and machine learning methods. I am interested in the conditions under which mind-wandering occurs, its different manifestations, and its impact on academic achievement.

 

LEAD offers me the great opportunity to learn from colleagues from different disciplines and backgrounds. The structured program and events like the LEAD retreats provide the perfect framework to discuss my work and get valuable feedback.
