About me

I studied Biology with a main focus on Neurobiology, conducting my PhD and postdoctoral studies in the field of Human Neuroscience. Methodologically my core interests are Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Eye-Tracking, Electromyography and Psychophysics.

Education

Post-doctoral training 2012-2014, Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics (CINN) / School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading, Reading, Berkshire, United Kingdom

PhD 2008-2012, Center for Systems Neuroscience Hannover (ZSN) / Hannover Medical School (MHH), Clinic of Psychiatry, Socialpsychiatry and Psychotherapy, Hanover, Germany

Research description

My research focuses on neural correlates and behavioral markers of Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASD) and ASD-related symptoms. More specifically, I am interested in biomarkers of overall symptom severity, as well as social cognition deficits, altered reward functioning and top-down processing in ASD.

Within the Roots of Autism and ADHD Twin Study in Sweden (RATSS), my aim is to identify connectivity-based biomarkers for ASD. To achieve this aim, I am currently investigating functional brain connectivity during the resting state using functional MRI and structural connectivity measured via Diffusion Tensor Imaging in twins.
