About me

  • I completed my PhD at Karolinska Institutet in 2017 within the Otto-Hahn
    Research Group on Associative Memory of the Max Planck Institute for Human
    Development in Berlin and the Aging Research Center at Karolinska Institutet.
    In 2018 I joined the Emotion Lab at Karolinska Institutet as part of my
    Swedish Research Council funded international postdoc project “Memory
    neuromodulation: How emotional contexts modulate neural item representations
    in healthy individuals and individuals with emotional disorders”.


  • My primary research interest lies in the neural basis of episodic memory
    formation. I have a strong interest in how we encode associations and
    specifically, how memory processes are modulated by emotions. To identify
    brain factors and activity patterns that relate to memory formation, I am
    applying behavioral and neuroimaging measures specifically in MTL
    substructures, amygdala, and frontal regions.
