Research interests

I am interested in how emotion influences episodic memory across the lifespan.

For my doctoral thesis, I am interested in the effect of emotion on associative memory processes in children, adolescents, and adults under the supervision of Prof. Ulrike Rimmele. Combining behavioral paradigms with neuroimaging would enable us to understand the complex dynamics of the development of emotional memory from childhood into adulthood.
