Fields of interest

  • neural basis of speech melody (prosody) perception
  • neural basis of music perception
  • neuropsychopharmacology
  • neural mechanisms of addiction


I am a post-doctoral researcher interested in how the human brain processes auditory information such as prosody and music. Furthermore, I am interested in effects of substance use on brain function and the neural basis of addiction. I use neuroimaging methods to do research on these topics.
