Research interests

Mechanisms and functions of NREM and REM sleep as well as dreams; conciousness studies

About

I did my Bachelor in Cognitive Sciences, taking classes in Mathematics, Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Neuroinformatics, Linguistics, Philosophy of Mind, Cognitive Psychology, and Neurobiology. My main focus has always been on the latter two research fields. In my bachelor thesis "Cross-Cultural Differences in Visual Attention and Emotion Recognition" I investigated cultural differences in facial emotion recognition, my mentor being Prof. Peter König. This study was a cooperation with Prof. Katsunori Okajima Yokohama National University, where I did a semester abroad. I did my master studies at the University of Amsterdam in "Brain and Cognitive Sciences". My first research project investigated the effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation on motor as well as cognitive symptoms of Parkinson's disease at Eus van Someren's lab at the Netherlands Institute for Neurosciences. My master thesis investigated the effects of longterm meditation on spontaneous brain activity during sleep at Dr. Giulio Tononi's lab in Madison, Wisconsin. My expertise is the study of sleep deprivation, dreams, and meditation using high-density electroencephalography. I currently work as an Associate Research Specialist in Dr. Tononi's Center for Sleep and Consciousness at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
