B.Sc., M.Sc.



My present research focuses on the mechanisms that underlie our motivation and decisions about whether to engage in a task, particularly when we become fatigued over time. To investigate these, I use cost-benefit decision-making paradigms in combination with functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and computational modelling approaches.

In another but somewhat related line of research, I am investigating how social context influences our visual attention by using behavioural and electrophysiological measures.


I received a B.Sc. in Psychology from the University of Freiburg, Germany, before working as a research intern at Stanford University School of Medicine and the VA Palo Alto Health Care System in a project evaluating the effects of a breathing training and sleep hygiene treatment on psychological and physiological hyperarousal in veterans with PTSD. Following this, I completed an international M.Sc. programme in Neuro-Cognitive Psychology at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, focusing on research on visual attention and perception, and spent one term at St Catherine´s College, University of Oxford, studying Quantitative Methods and Social Psychology. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student at the Department of Experimental Psychology.
