Research interests

My main research interests focus on cognitive and computational neuroscience, particularly reinforcement learning. My current aim is to investigate the neural and computational mechanisms by which humans learn how to seek rewards and avoid punishments. For this I will employ multimodal brain imaging (behaviour, simultaneous EEG-fMRI in 7T and eye-tracking) as well as computational modelling. During my PhD, I studied the impact of acute stress on reward and punishment learning.
