Consultation hour: According to prior agreement

I am a Professor in the cognitive, affective and social neuroscience areas of the Psychology Department at University of Innsbruck. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Innsbruck, I completed my Master's degree at the University of Klagenfurt, my Ph.D. at the University of Goettingen and postdoctoral training at the Freie Universität Berlin and the Medical University of Vienna. Using a combination of behavioral, physiological, and neuroimaging measures, I am interested in understanding how emotions are generated, how people regulate their emotions and how emotional experiences influence other cognitive functions such as decision-making, language, and memory.  When I make it outside of LFU, I enjoy running, traveling, surfing, cooking, sewing and handcrafting.

I am a medical student at Charité Universität Berlin and work as a student assistant at the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience of Freie Universität Berlin. Before my medical studies, I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. I am extremely interested in studying the human brain in general, with a focus on emotion processing as well as methodological issues of neuroimaging. As a graduate student in the Affective Neuro Lab, I am investigating the reliability of brain activity associated with emotion generation and regulation using fMRI. In my free time, I enjoy running, doing yoga, cooking and singing.
