I am a cognitive neuroscientist with both, a
psychological (PhD) as well
as a medical background (MD), working as a CNRS researcher at the
LaPsyDÉ, Université de Paris, Sorbonne Paris Cité. My research at the
Cognitive Neuroscience, Experimental (Neuro)psychology, and
Developmental Psychology is dedicated to the understanding of the
cognitive and neural underpinnings of numerical cognition.
graduating from Medical School (RWTH Aachen University, Germany) in
2007, I received my MD degree at RWTH Aachen University in 2009 (summa cum laude, supervisor: Klaus Willmes) and my
PhD degree at Tuebingen University (Germany) in 2012 (summa cum laude, supervisor: Hans-Christoph Nuerk). I have been a
post-doctoral researcher in the laboratory of Korbinian Moeller at the Leibniz-Institute for Wissensmedien in
Tuebingen (Germany) from 2012 to 2019, where I headed the junior
research group NeuroLearn from 2014 to 2019. From 2015 to 2019 I also was a Wrangell-Fellow.
My work is grounded in the view that normal and impaired higher cognitive functions can only be fully explained when combining the understanding of their neural grey matter correlates and their structural as well as functional connectivity with behaviour.
