I’m currently a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Prof. Russell Epstein at University of Pennsylvania. I am interested in fundamental and generalizable mechanisms underlying cognition. I use various methods from computational modelling and fMRI to investigate flexible behaviour and neural representations in spatial navigation.

I did my PhD at University College London researching spatial navigation in rodents and humans using models of reinforcement learning in the lab of Prof. Hugo Spiers. My PhD was part of a larger Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) which aims to understand how the hippocampus contributes to memory.

I have a MSc in Brain and Cognitive sciences from University of Amsterdam and a BSc in Cognitive Science from Umeå University. I spent 2 years as a research assistant at Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, in the lab of Prof. Tobias Donner.

My previous projects focused on using computational modelling and human neurophysiology (MEG) to investigate value-based decision-making and perceptual inference.

I co-found a PostGraduate group at UCL called MLCog, which aims to help ECRs apply methods of machine learning and computational modelling to their research.
