Annika Dix

Annika Dix is specialized in the field of human problem solving using methods from Psychology and Neuroscience. After her PhD at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, she joined the Lifespan Developmental Neuroscience unit at the Technische Univeristät Dresden. There, she gave seminars on Developmental Psychology for teacher trainees and conducted research on factors affecting perceptual decision-making and problem-solving in humans (e.g., age, incentives).

At the Chair of Engineering Psychology and Applied Cognitive Research, she currently contributes her expertise to research at CeTI. Developing approaches in real and virtual reality for research on augmented multisensory perception and interaction, she investigates the interplay between human cognition and contextual factors in dynamic interactions for deriving demands and objectives in using augmented cyber-physical systems.

Projects/Cooperation within CeTI you are involved in:

• The impact of feedback delays on visuomotor learning in complex motor tasks (K3, U1)
• Feedback optimization – distance feedback and movement path control (TP2, K3, U3)
• Visuomotor learning in real and virtual environments (TP1, TP5, K3)

CeTI rooms within CeTI you are involved in:

TP1, K3, U1, U3

Further Questions:

What do you value most about your work at CeTI?

The possibility to freely chose my research focus and to investigate diverse topics on augmented perception and interaction with research partners from different disciplines having access to state-of-the-art technology or contributing to innovative technological developments.
