Thereafter, I joined the Clinical Research Group for Neuroophthalmology
(founded by the „Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)“) at the
of Tübingen. Thereat, I worked for Prof. Fahle and Prof. Thier,
responsible for the experimental setups and the development of visual
and measurement registration software for the psychophysical and
In 1998, I left Tübingen and started to work as a hard- and software engineer for Oculus (Wetzlar, Germany), a company manufacturing instruments for opticians and ophthalmologists.
In 2000, I rejoined the group of Prof. Fahle at the Institute of Human Neurobiology (University of Bremen). Although being involved in substantial work related to research, my primary task was to provide technical support to co-workers and students in the lab. As a major part this also included software development.
In 2004, I went along with Prof. Michael Herzog to build up the Laboratory of Psychophysics (LPSY) here at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne - EPFL).
