My research focuses on understanding the cognitive and neural basis of human episodic memory. I am particularly interested in episodic encoding and retrieval processes and their specific interplay with semantic memories. In my research I use a combination of behavioral and functional brain imaging techniques (MRI and EEG/MEG) to test cognitive theories and to ultimately advance our understanding of how brain networks might support different memory processes. Furthermore, I am interested in using neural network simulations to improve our insight into how cognitive theories link in with observed neural dynamics.
