Aktuel forskning

I am pursuing a PhD in the research project Intentions, Selection, and Agency (ISA), in which my colleagues and I investigate how we remember what we have decided to do. In order for this to happen appropriately, we need to select and retrieve the right intention in a particular given context from a large set of multiple intentions that we have formed at some point in the past. This ability is central for human agency. Without it, we would lose our ability for long-term planning, and our psychological and practical life would lose its structure and stability. 

I conduct my research under the supervision of Søren Kyllingsbæk, and co-supervision of Thor Grünbaum. The ISA project is part of the Cognition, Intention, and Action (CoInAct) research group, which is an interdisciplinary research group, performing experimental and theoretical research within cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and philosophy of mind and action.
