PhD Student in Psychology

I am a doctoral researcher in comparative cognition and computational neuroethology, currently studying pigeon behavior at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience in Bochum, Germany.

During my Master’s degree in Psychological Research Methods I worked on numerical cognition in Chimpanzees, Lemurs, and Humans. My Bachelor’s degree focused on signal processing and machine learning models for sleep detection in fatigued car drivers.

Beyond my academic research, I work as an independent Statistical Consultant and Research Software Engineer in academic and industrial projects.
