I have a background in Psychology and Neuroscience which has led me to pursue a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience. During my previous Master internship projects I have gained experience using in vivo electrophysiology in the rodent hippocampus. This has ultimately shaped my main research interest in understanding the mechanisms of the hippocampus (and other structures) in memory and learning, but especially episodic memory. This interest spans from the molecular level all the way to the cognitive-behavioural and phemenological level.

Research interests

  • Recognition memory in humans and non-human animals
  • Memory and learning
  • Mechanisms of the hippocampal formation
  • Event segmentation and event boundaries
  • Phenomenology of memory
  • Evolution of cognitive processes
