Antje Nuthmann



I studied Psychology at the Humboldt University Berlin (Germany) and the University of Toronto (Canada), graduating in 2002. In 2006 I was awarded a Dr. phil. in Psychology from the University of Potsdam (Germany), for research on eye-movement control in reading. Following a year of post-doctoral research in Potsdam, I moved to Edinburgh to take up a 5-year tenure-track position as an Academic Fellow in Visual Cognition. In 2010 I was promoted early to a tenured lectureship.
