Meike is a Research Fellow in the Department of Psychology at the University of Aberdeen, working on human information processing. After a BSc and MSc in Systems Biology at Bielefeld University, she conducted her PhD at the University of Bath, studying the effects of developmental cross-modal plasticity on multisensory integration.
She is interested in how the (developing) human brain learns to abstract natural statistics of the environment in order to transform sensory information into perceptual representations and ultimately into adaptive behaviour. Meike also worked as a Teaching Fellow at the University of Bath, where she supported both sighted and visually impaired students. She is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
