    University Position
    PhD student


    I am interested in the neural basis of reinforcement learning and cognitive flexibility in relation to depression and other psychiatric disorders. I use multimodal neuroimaging and behavioural datasets in my research and aim to translate findings from rodents to humans. I employ reinforcement learning and machine learning algorithms.
