SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I am interested in an inter-disciplinary approach to bio-mechanical systems, such as
those of locomotion and audition. I, at the same time, question how far our neural circuits are determined by interaction with other humans. Looking from infancy onwards, I'd like to explore how that relates to notions of pain, dreams, the process of thinking, and self-image.
