Hinze is an Associate Professor at QUT in Brisbane, Australia, having recently relocated from the University of Melbourne. He previously studied and worked in Europe and the United States, including Utrecht University (Netherlands), University College London (UK), and Harvard University (USA). At QUT, he leads the TimingLab, which focuses on understanding the time-course of the neural processes that underlie cognitive functions, especially perception. He is currently particularly interested in how the brain solves the complications that arise because its own processing takes time.
