I'm a PhD student doing research in cognitive computational neuroscience at the Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin, Germany. I am part of the Neural Dynamics of Visual Cognition Lab, led by Radek Cichy. My research aims at understanding how vision is algorithmically solved in (biological/artificial) intelligent agents, but foremost in the human brain. For this I combine brain imaging data (M/EEG, fMRI) with machine learning and deep learning algorithms to develop new computational modeling tools that advance our theoretical understanding of the computations underlying intelligent systems. More broadly, I am interested in the symbiotic interaction between neuroscience and computer science, and I push for open science.
