Current projects

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.

Since July 2013 we test this custome-made Sonificator with a special therapeutic manual in a first clinical trial. We therefore train and test stroke-patients in some rehabilitation hospitals. This clinical trial is supported by the Hertie-Foundation for Neurosciences.


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 finalized my PhD at the Center for Systems Neuroscience Hanover (ZSN) in december 2015. I am also co-founder and manager of a record label.

Till autumn 2014 i additionally studied jazz composing with Prof. Niels Klein, jazz guitar and piano at Osnabrück. Since october 2015 i work besides my job at IMMM as a lecturer for Small Ensemble Arranging and Composing at HMTMH.
