Research Assistant

Neurostimulation Group

Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research (LIR), Mainz, Germany

I have a background in psychology (B.Sc.) and cognitive neuroscience (M.Sc.). From an early stage,  I have been involved in several projects combining various methods, such as fMRI, TMS, polysomnography and novel sleep recording techniques at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour in Nijmegen, Netherlands. As a PhD candidate, I am currently investigating emotional memory processing during wakefulness and sleep using concurrent TMS-fMRI, EEG-fMRI and TMS-EEG.
