Academic interests

  • Brain asymmetry and its relation to cognition and cognitive decline

  • Post-encoding mechanisms of memory consolidation during sleep and waking rest

  • Constructive memory

  • Brain structure-function relationships throughout the lifespan

  • The borders between healthy and pathological aging

  • Multimodal brain imaging (e.g. fMRI, DTI)

  • Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) effects on cognition

I am working as a PhD candidate in the Research Group for Lifespan Changes in Brain and Cognition (LCBC). The focus of my project is on structural and functional brain asymmetry and its relationship to cognitive functioning throughout the lifespan, with a particular emphasis on episodic memory and the ageing brain.
