LIFE Fellow since 2019, MPI for Human Development, Berlin
I am a doctoral student in the Lifespan Neural Dynamics Group located at the MPIB. My dissertation advisor is Douglas Garrett. In my project I employ multimodal neuroimaging techniques to investigate the neural bases of learning and memory processes and their ageing-related changes. I have a keen interest in computational methods to model behavioral and brain-imaging data. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Leiden University in the Netherlands in 2016 before moving to Berlin, where I received my Master’s degree in Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience from the FU. For my Master’s thesis, I investigated the effects of a dopaminergic drug on reinforcement learning behavior in older adults and linking them to changes in BOLD signal variability.
