Curriculum vitae

Scientific interests:

I am medical doctor fascinated by the brain. As a scientist I enjoy working from a translational perspective at the intersection of human physiology, basic science and advancement of neuroimaging methodologies. For my doctoral studies I employ molecular neuroimaging techniques to investigate different aspects of synaptic plasticity in the human brain, with a focus on drug interventions and stroke.
