About Me

Profile Picture

I am a postdoctoral researcher with a background in computer science and cognitive science. I received a bachelor's degree in computer science from University of Ulm before continuing my studies in cognitive science at University of Tübingen. After my Master I joined the Kavli Institute to pursue my PhD with Christian F. Doeller and Caswell Barry. Currently, I am a postdoc with Mackenzie W. Mathis at EPFL.
