I am a PhD candidate of the Berlin School of Mind and Brain as well as a fellow of the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin. My supervisors are Prof. Felix Bermpohl and Prof. Isabel Dziobek.


I am interested in social understanding of other's in the brain and how it is influenced by our life experiences and the person we want to understand. My doctoral project investigates the influence of motherhood on empathy and theory of mind. Additionally, I am very passionate about Open Science and reproducibility. You can find more details on my interests and findings here and my data and scripts on OSF!

Additionally to my PhD, I teach at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain and the Hasso Plattner Institute Potsdam. Topics range from coding over experimental design to the neuroscience of empathy. You can find examples here


Before starting my PhD, I completed two Master's courses, one in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics from the University of Cambridge and one in Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience from the Free University of Berlin.
