Prof. Dr Martin Fischer

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