Neural Dynamics of Visual Cognition

Intern

Habelschwerdter Allee 45

I am currently a Highschool student at the Rosa-Luxemburg-Gymnasium in
Berlin. I joined the lab as an intern in May 2022 under the supervision of
Alessandro Gifford and Pablo Oyarzo.

My current plan is to study electrical engineering and information
technology, followed by medicine. While it is my mid term goal to study
the brain and the possibilities of BCI, my long term ambition is to become
an astronaut. Because of that, I engage in many programs for both fields,
the next one being a rocket engineering program in Norway supported by a
scholarship from the European Space Agency.

I am a member of the Humboldt University student society for classical
studies and physics.

In my free time, I enjoy playing the guitar, composing, drawing, diving,
climbing, participating in Hackathons and being around people in general.

My goal is to predict neural activity to the visual stimuli and the
frequency of an auditive wave by utilizing Deep Neural Networks. At the
same time, I am also interested in reconstructing parts of the visual and
auditive sensation by developing a model that can decode data collected by
an EEG or other non-invasive measurement tools.

Ongoing projects:
Together with Alessandro and Pablo, we collect EEG data of the neural
response to seeing naturalistic videos.
