Current projects

Since May 2021 i additionally work as cognitive behavioral psychotherapist with a focus on psychic disorders of musicians.

Since 2018 i mainly work in the research projects "Train the brain with music" and in research on the influence of psychic traumatization on motor learning.

From July 2013 till September 2018 we tested this custome-made Sonificator with a special therapeutic manual in a first clinical trial. We therefore trained and tested stroke-patients in some rehabilitation hospitals. This clinical trial was supported by the Hertie-Foundation for Neurosciences.

Until July 2013 I worked in an ERDF-consortial project on "sonification of gestures". We developed and built a device which helps stroke-patients via musical support in their rehabilitation.


In May 2021 i got my certification as cognitive behavioral psychotherapist.

From october 2015 till september 2019 i worked besides my job at IMMM as a lecturer for Small Ensemble Arranging and Composing and as a lecturer for pedagogical psychology at HMTMH.

I finalized my PhD at the Center for Systems Neuroscience Hanover (ZSN) in december 2015.

Till autumn 2014 i studied jazz composing with Prof. Niels Klein, jazz guitar and piano at Osnabrück.

In 2010 I got my diploma in psychology from the University of Marburg. Currently, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher at the IMMM. I am also co-founder and manager of a record label.
