Postdoctoral Research Associate, Durham University

Meike is a Research Associate in the Department of Psychology at the University of Durham, researching how humans are learn to use novel sensory information in everyday life. 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. Between 2020 and 2021, she worked as a Research Fellow at University of Aberdeen in Social Cognition, studying how human information processing is altered by a stable sense of self.
She is interested in how the (developing) human brain learns to abstract and use natural statistics of the environment in order to transform sensory information into perceptual representations and to, ultimately, guide adaptive behaviour. Meike also worked as a Teaching Fellow at the University of Bath, where she supported sighted and visually impaired students. She is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
