DPhil Candidate in Psychiatry

I am a DPhil student supervised by Professor Klaus Ebmeier, Dr Sana Suri and Dr Miriam Klein-Flügge. My research focuses on the detection of brain connectivity pathways across the lifespan, which are influenced by diet and the metabolic system.

I am investigating the associations among diet, metabolism, cognition and brain structure, function and connectivity across the lifespan. I analyse data from younger adults who are part of the Human Connectome Project (HCP) and longitudinal data (mid-life-older adults) from the Whitehall II cohort. I am particularly interested in brain connectivity changes associated with diet and metabolism, which might be used to explain important pathways related to dementia, obesity, and/or diabetes.

Prior to my DPhil, I worked as a Research Assistant (2018) in the research group of Matthew Rushworth, and completed a MSc degree in Cognitive Science at Eberhard-Karls University Tübingen (2017), and a BSc in Biology at Freie Universität Berlin (2013).
