My research focuses on the effects of lifestyle on healthy cognitive ageing. I am interested in how brain structure and function influence cognitive performance over the lifespan. Over the course of my PhD I work on fMRI data collected by the Cambridge Centre for Ageing and Neuroscience (Cam-CAN).

I hold a B.Sc. in Psychology from FU Berlin and a M.A. in Clinical Psychology with a research methods and neuroscience concentration from Columbia University in New York.
