During my Bachelor’s studies I developed an interest in health-related topics, bio-psychological interactions and neuro-imaging methods. Following those interests I worked with both EEG and fMRI in the course of my Master’s studies on projects investigating chronic pain and visual learning . My current research focusses on cue reactivity to food and decision making using mouse tracking, eyetracking and EEG.
