Summary

Graduate Research Director, School of Life Sciences/ ESRC White Rose DTP Deputy Director, Wellbeing, Health & Communities. Dr Igor Schindler joined the University of Hull in 2005, having previously worked as senior research associate at the University of Durham and as post-doctoral researcher at INSERM U371 ‘Cerveau et Vision' in Bron, France. Before he was awarded a PhD at the University of Hamburg in 2001, he worked as a clinical neuropsychologist in the Clinical Neuropsychology Research Group (EKN) in Munich, Germany. His main research interests focus on multisensory brain processes supporting our interactions with the environment. For this research, he uses behavioural and brain stimulation techniques (e.g. TMS, tDCS).
