As a PhD student and scientific staff member of the University Clinic for Neurology at the University of Oldenburg, I am working on functional brain connectivity analyses. I use neuroimaging data from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate how the interplay of different brain regions changes due to disease (Parkinson's disease and writer's cramp).


Since 2018        University of Oldenburg, scientific staff member and PhD student

2017 – 2018      University of Oldenburg, Cognitive Psychology, MSc

2015 – 2017      University of Bremen, Neuroscience, MSc

2012 – 2015      University of Osnabrück, Cognitive Science, BSc


The human brain consists of different functional areas that are responsible for different tasks. However, it is becomming more and more obvious that these areas are not totally independent. Instead, their interplay is often necessary.

This interplay can, however, be disrupted due to brain disorders. I am investigating how the conectivity of brain regions changes in patients with writer's cramp and patients with Parkinson's disease.
