Research Interests: 

As leader of the Plasticity in Children project, I seek to understand how brain maturation and cognitive development mutually influence each other and are shaped by changing environmental influences. I am particularly interested in how the ability to flexibly monitor and regulate learning and memory changes in childhood and adolescence, as well as in later adulthood. I adopt a multi-method approach, including training and experimental studies with children and adults that I combine with physiological measures such as structural and functional MRI or eye tracking, along with multivariate statistical methods of change and variability.
