Experimental Psychology (2015 cohort)
My research as a DPhil student focuses on two main questions: 1. How does the brain represent value? And 2. How does this representation enable or hinder humans to adjust their decision policy according to changes in the environment or in their own needs?
I use a combination of functional magnetic resonance imaging and computational modelling to address these questions. My background is in psychology and cognitive science, but I am gradually shifting to research that lies at the intersection of computer science, cognitive neuroscience, and economics.
I hold a B.Sc. in Psychology from Hamburg University, and an M.Sc. in Cognitive Science from University of Osnabrück. I worked as research assistant in Media Psychology (2 years), Decision Neuroscience (0.5yrs), and Clinical Psychology (0.5), and as tutor for statistics while studying towards my degrees.
