Short CV: 

Dr. rer. nat., 2011, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Dipl.-Psych, 2007, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin


Research Interests: 
  • Development of perception and memory across the lifespan

  • Working memory and episodic memory processes

  • Interplay between sensory and cognitive functions
