External LIFE Fellow since 2024, MPI for Human Development

I am an external fellow at the Center for Lifespan Psychology at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin within the RHYME group under the supervision of Markus Werkle-Bergner.  My research interests are spatial navigation, episodic memory and the maturation of associated neural signatures. I graduated as bachelor of psychology from the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg in 2020. My thesis topic was the factor structure and measurement invariance of the Baumgarten-Adjektivliste in self-report and peer-report. I have then studied cognitive science at the University of Potsdam. For my master thesis project, children aged 4 to 8 years played 3-D video games and I analyzed their performance across a task battery including spatial navigation strategy, spatial memory, reversal learning performance, and motor performance. For my dissertation, I will build on my master thesis using longitudinal and neuroimaging data.
