Open Thesis / Seminar / Practical Seminar

If you are interested in doing a B.Sc. / M.Sc. Thesis or Literature Review/Practical Seminar with me, drop me an email with your résumégrade sheet(s).

I usually have some open thesis topics in the field of eye-tracking, deisging experiment, eye-movement analysis, attention, working memory,  etc. and searching for motivated students. Those who love to be creative and ready to accept challenges!

We are running following research projects by integrating eye-trackers and several thesis/seminars are available for each project. If you are interested in any of those or have any question, feel free to contact me.
