Prof. Martin Fischer, Ph.D. (Chair)

After my undergraduate Psychology degree from RWTH Aachen/Germany, I worked in Massachusetts/USA from 1991-1996. I investigated eye and body movements and their effects on spatial attention to obtain a PhD. After 3 years as post-doc at Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich/Germany, I moved to University of Dundee/Scotland. There, I worked for 12 years on various interdisciplinary topics, such as poetry reception, humanoid robots and numerical cognition, before becoming Full Professor of Cognitive Sciences at the University of Potsdam/Germany in 2011. My current research focus is on embodied cognition.
