    Collapse Overview
    I have joined the Seeley lab in November 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow. My background is in Neuroscience and Public Health. I obtained my PhD from the Technical University of Munich, where I investigated large-scale brain network dysfunctions in Alzheimer’s disease, with a specific focus on multimodal neuroimaging and intrinsic activity of the medial temporal lobes. Among other projects, I have collaborated with the Psychiatry Department of King’s College London on a project investigating neurological determinants of dementia in low and middle income countries (10/66 Research Group), and with the Brain Institute in Natal on a fMRI project investigating the effects of the psychedelic substance Ayahuasca on brain activity. My main interests are to investigate the link between neuropathology and neuroimaging, and to develop subject tailored neuroimaging biomarkers for frontotemporal dementia.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
