I am a PhD candidate in Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience under the supervision of Dr. Stefan Kohler studying the neural basis of lifetime concept familiarity using fMRI, patient studies, as well as behavioural studies incorporating masked priming manipulations. I completed my M.Sc. with Dr. Kohler as well, having studied the nature of subliminal affective priming on familiarity-based recognition memory.
