I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Hector Research Institute for Education Science and Psychology at the University of Tübingen working in the field of developmental neuroscience with a focus on intellectually gifted children. My interest lies in how the spatial organization of the cerebral cortex subserves learning and cognition in the human brain. To this end, I pursue questions about the developmental mechanisms by which the spatial arrangement of functions may emerge in the cerebral cortex, and its ramifications for cognitive abilities.

I am interested in the effects of emotions on cognition particularly the influence of mood on memory. Any given mood state appears to have an influence on cognitive processing. Mood affects memory, what we think and remember matches our mood state (mood congruity). My research will focus on emotion regulation in adolescence and adulthood as well as how mood states affect memory processes using behavioural, physiological and neuroimaging methods to provide insight into link between emotion, mood and memory in adolescence and adulthood.

I am a PhD student at the Hector Research Institute for Education Science and Psychology at the University of Tübingen. My project will focus on how mental health issues and their implications on motivation and emotion impact our ability to achieve our goals. Some of my interests revolve around self-regulation and self-regulated learning as well as educational psychology.
