Until October 2019 I am a master student in the Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience program at FU Berlin.

From November 2019 on I will be a trainee of the SMART START training program, funded by the Bernstein Network, and a visitor to the lab.

I graduated with a BSc in Psychology from McGill University, where I worked on the relation between mood disorders and stress using EEG. During my Bachelor’s degree, I also completed an internship at the Leipzig University, where I explored the effectiveness of alternative therapy methods on OCD treatment. Please find my CV here.

I am currently working on my master thesis with Polina Iamschinina. We are interested in neural dynamics of category processing and we will use EEG decoding methodology to explore conceptual representations in the brain independent of modality (auditory or visual).

From November 2019 on I will we working on a one-year project investigating the spatiotemporal neural dynamics underlying visual categorization decisions. I will use a set of neuroimaging (EEG, fMRI) and computational (deep neural networks) towards this aim. I will be supervised by Prof. Klaus Obermayer (TU) and Radek Cichy.
