Postdoctoral Researcher


I am a postdoctoral researcher working in the Decision and Action Laboratory with Prof. Matthew Rushworth.

My research focuses on the cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in learning and decision-making. I am looking at how the history of rewards we got for previous choices influences decisions that we make later, both in individual and social settings. I am using human functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and computational modeling.

Before I started my doctorate, 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.
