How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

I graduated from the MEi:CogSci master’s program in Cognitive Science at the University of Vienna, and I have primarily focused on empirical phenomenology and on the self, my main research topic of interest. I am currently attending a master's program at the JSI Postgraduate School and am collaborating with the Department of Knowledge Technologies at JSI working on topics centered on NLP. My aim is to integrate computational methods into a neurophenomenological framework.
Automatic term extraction (ATE) is a Natural Language Processing (NLP) task that eases the effort of manually identifying terms from domain-specific corpora by providing a list of candidate terms. As units of knowledge in a specific field of expertise, extracted terms are not only beneficial for several terminographical tasks, but also support and...
In cognitive science, it is unclear what precisely presence (both in the sense of objecthood and immersion) refers to in lived experience. The present study addresses the research question of what the relationship between presence is and lived space. A hundred and seventeen phenomenological interviews were conducted with 14 participants. We sampled...
Dissolution experiences (DEs) are experiential episodes during which the perceived boundaries between self and world (i.e., nonself) become fainter or less clear. This is usually accompanied by a sense of unity with the world or elements of it. Experiences matching the definition of DEs are reported in different strands of literature, both academic...
Philosophical and qualitative studies of presence emphasize its spatial nature. The aim of this study is to investigate lived space – that is, space as it appears in experience – in alterations of presence. A transdiagnostic approach was undertaken. Rather than focusing on a single type of alteration, a variety of different contexts are considered...
The process of change is universally referred to when explaining the human psyche in the domain of attitude and behavior change. However, change is either presumed to simply exist without further elaboration, or it is reduced to neurobiological processes. While there is a substantial effort to detect, forecast and induce change, especially in the m...
We report on an exploratory empirical phenomenological study investigating the so-called dissolution experiences (DEs), characterized by the subject experiencing a) a dissolution of her psychological or sensory boundaries and/or a fading of the sense of the self as a separate entity, and/or b) a feeling of unity or identification with (elements of)...
Emotion regulation refers to the ability of effectively responding to emotions, shaping the expression and experience of those emotions. This project investigates the effects that the way people look at art could have on this process. It is hypothesized that focusing on the positive aspects of negative art leads to be able to better deal with emoti...
