Find out more about one of associated researchers.
I'm Danish. I was born in Horsens and have lived and studied in Aarhus for the last 12 years. I have a background in the study of religion and psychology.
My main area of research is experiences in which humans perceive other living beings that are not really there. I explore these experiences using sensory deprivation, mobile eye tracking and virtual reality. I mostly collaborate with researchers from the Religion, Cognition and Culture research unit and affiliates of the Interacting Minds Centre.
No, this semester I am lucky to be able to devote myself entirely to finishing my thesis. In previous semesters, I have been teaching courses on experimental methods, psychology of religion, divination, and mysticism.
I heard about the lab before it was even up and running, and I remember being very excited about Aarhus University getting its first eye tracker.
I have used the Lab many times, mostly for conducting eye tracking studies. I think the main benefits are the great rooms and equipments available. The Lab also has great software support and a setup that makes recruitment of participants really smooth.
Cognition and Behavior Lab has its own participant pool, which often makes things a lot easier. However, researchers are not allowed to do research designs that involve deception of participants, which, for people with an interest in social psychology, can sometimes be a disappointment. I just want to remind other researchers that you can still do research designs that involve deception in the lab as long as you bring your own participants.
