I am a Cognitive Neuroscientist interested in decision-making. I study how the brain combines external evidence with internal beliefs and/or expectations to choose a course of action. I address this question using a few complementary approaches like psychophysics, neuroimaging (fMRI & MEG), pupillometry, and computational modeling. Read more about my research here.
Currently, I am a Visiting (Postdoctoral) fellow in the Laboratory of Sensorimotor Research at the National Eye Institute, which is part of the National Institutes of Health located in Bethesda, USA. Prior to this, I did my PhD, and a brief postdoc with Prof. Dr. Tobias Donner at the University Medical Centre Hamburg- Eppendorf, Germany.
