My primary research interests concern sensorimotor integration and somatosensation which I investigate from a computational as well as experimental point of view. In particular I aim to understand how optimal control, predictive processes, motor learning and proprioceptive accuracy may differ in individuals with autism spectrum disorders and how these differences relate to the functional connectivity of the primary motor cortex, premotor cortex, SMA and cerebellum.
Outside of my PhD I also help out with research on the computational and neurobiological basis of visual hallucinations drawing from both psychophysics as well as computer vision paradigms.
In addition I'm involved with the TIME-A project, a randomised controlled trial on music therapy for children with autism: http://uni.no/en/uni-health/gamut/trial-of-improvisational-music-therapys-effectiveness-for-children-with-autism-time-a/
