Corinna Kührt

Corinna Kührt is a postdoctoral researcher at CeTI. She contributes to human-in-the-loop research with focus on augmented multisensory perception and interaction. She uses approaches in real and virtual reality to investigate the interplay between human cognition and contextual factors in dynamic interactions. She is interested in the demands and objectives in using augmented cyber-physical systems (CPS). After studying psychology, Corinna Kührt joined the Collaborative Research Centre 940 “Volition and Cognitive Control”. There she focussed on individual differences in cognitive motivation and control in the context of decision-making. Her approach ranges from experimental, neurocognitive and psychophysiological to advanced statistical methods. After completing her doctorate, she now brings her expertise to CeTI at the Chair of Engineering Psychology and Applied Cognitive Research.

Further questions:

What is your research interest?
My research focuses on augmented multisensory perception in interactions between humans and cyber-physical systems. Beyond that, I am interested in individual differences in cognitive control, cognitive motivation and effort discouting.

What motivated you to do what you do today?
First and foremost my curiosity and my passion for research. I look forward to new approaches and exciting oppertunities for applied research in a collaborative environment.

What do you find particularly interesting about CeTI?
The interdisciplinarity. I like the collaboration across disciplines and the atmosphere of a grand shared vision where psychology and engineering come together.

To which question have you not found an answer lately? / What else would you like to research?
There are too many questions – otherwise I would not be a researcher.

How do you spend your free time?
With my family and preferably outdoors.
