    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.
