I completed a M.A. in linguistics and philosophy at Humboldt University Berlin and a MSc in philosophy at University of Edinburgh while also working at the Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences. I then moved to Australia to investigate co-speech gestures for my PhD in cognitive science from Macquarie University Sydney. After a postdoc at the Centre for Advanced Imaging at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, I was awarded a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship and moved to Wales to work at Swansea University. I have joined Bournemouth University in July 2020 as a fellow on the Academic Targeted Research Scheme.


I am a cognitive neuroscientist with research interests in anxiety/fear, learning, and language. I use psychophysiology, multi-modal neuroimaging and machine learning to investigate the interaction between emotion and cognition in clinical and healthy populations.

I am interested in affective computing, in particular digital methods to remotely measure heart rate and respiration with applications for biofeedback therapy and clinical assessment.
