I am a postdoctoral researcher excited about global neuromodulatory mechanisms, basic functions of the motor system and tackling brain processes with a multimodal focus.

I obtained a B.Sc. in Psychology at the University of Mannheim, focusing on cognitive neuroscience with a minor in informatics. Here I conducted EEG- and fNIRS research addressing emotional information processing with Prof. Alpers and Dr. Gerdes. In Tübingen, I received an M.Sc. in Neural and Behavioural Sciences at the Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience & International Max Planck Research School of Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience. My two lab rotations took place in Tübingen with Prof. Siegel and in Washington, D.C. with Prof. Rauschecker. With Prof. Siegel I then conducted my master‘s project assessing the spectral fingerprints of cortical neuromodulation with magnetoencephalography, which we further pursued during my doctoral time. My doctoral project at the Movement Disorders and Neurostimulation group of Prof. Groppa in Mainz addressed the functional and structural brain integrity of patients with multiple sclerosis. We here combined fMRI, TMS, diffusion-weighted imaging and conventional structural imaging techniques with network neuroscience for predictions of clinical outcomes. Moreover, we established a link between microstructure imaging and excitability of the motor system. Til Ole Bergmann’s Neurostimulation group provides me with the versatile environment to combine previously acquired skills with sophisticated research methods for expanding knowledge about basic mechanisms of the motor system.
