I work in the fields of cognitive and social neuroscience using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), Transcranial Magnetic Brain Stimulation (TMS), and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS). My research focuses on the behavioural and neural enhancement of cognitive control, response inhibition, and impulse control. Particularly, I investigate how inhibitory processing is mirrored in neuronal networks, how these networks can be modulated by non-invasive brain stimulation, and how such modulations are linked to impulsive and aggressive behaviour and other form of self-control failure. Furthermore, I am interested in the neural mechanisms underlying social group identification, such as in-group bias, intergroup prejudice, and intergroup contact effects.
