Human Factors and Applied Cognition
Patrick Weis is a first year doctoral student working with Dr. Eva Wiese in the Social Robotics and Embodied Cognition lab. His research interests include psychophysiology, improving human-technology-interfaces, and embodied cognition. Patrick received a B.Sc. in Psychology from Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg, Germany. He also received a M.Sc. in Neural and Behavioural Sciences from the International Max Planck Research School of Neural and Behavioural Sciences and the University of Tuebingen, Germany. He worked with labs in the fields of multimodal integration, sleep-dependent
memory consolidation, early vision, language processing, and human-computer-interaction. During that work he enjoyed employing diverse methods including ECG, EDA measurement, EEG, Eye-Tracking, fEMG, Psychophysics, Wrist Acceleration Measurement, and EMS.
