Postdoctoral Research Associate
I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate working in the Decision and Action Laboratory with Prof. Matthew Rushworth.
My research focuses on the computational and neural mechanisms involved in learning and social cognition. I am using human functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and computational modelling.
I did a MSc (Diploma) in Psychology at the Universities of Konstanz (Germany) and Nijmegen (Netherlands), as well as a MSc and DPhil in Neuroscience (University of Oxford) as part of a Wellcome Trust funded 1+3 programme in Neuroscience.
