This is a list of my publications which i try to keep up to date on a regular basis. The last update was in August 2020. For collections that are always up to date please visit my ResearchGate and/or Google Scholar profile.

Since October 2020 i am an associate editor for frontiers in Neuroergonomics.

I am also regularly performing reviews for a number of journals, some of them shown on the right. You can find my publons profile here.
