Thorsten has studied mathematics with focus on mathematical logic in Muenster. Then he worked for three years in the BBCI project of Benjamin Blankertz (Fraunhofer FIRST, IDA, Klaus-Robert Mueller). Currently he supervises the work of nine graduate students and gives two lecture-courses on the fundamentals of BCI research. His research focuses on the field Brain-Computer Interaction - namely the enhancement of the PhyPA-BCI by adding online detection of Non-Stationarities, multimodal Error-Responses and Workload-Indices.
