I received my Diplom (German Master’s degree equivalent) in Psychology in 2009 from the University of Marburg and joined the ACC lab in October 2009 to start my PhD here. I am currently in my final year.
I am interested in cognitive control and human memory. For my Master’s thesis I investigated the control of long-term memory retrieval in the presence of irrelevant and interfering information with fMRI. My DPhil research investigates interactions between cognitive control and memory, by studying how control influences encoding and retrieval, but also by investigating similarities in both research fields. I study these processes both behaviourally as well as with neuroimaging methods like EEG and fMRI.
