Hi, I am Stefan.

I am currently pursuing my PhD in cognitive neuroscience at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin:

  • How do humans search for information before making a value based choice?

  • When do they decide to stop gathering additional information?

  • How is active information accumulation different from passive information accumulation?

Next to figuring out these questions, I am contributing to the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS), an emerging standard for the organization and documentation of neuroimaging data. BIDS will help making neuroscience more reproducible by facilitating (re)use, sanity-checking, and sharing of scientific data.

I am also interested in more technical and concrete problems, such as how to accurately mark events in an experiment using consumer grade hardware.

Finally, I am a strong proponent of open source software and contribute to several software packages such as:
