I completed my master degree in Applied Experimental Psychological Science as an Erasmus student from Potsdam University, and Bicooca University as my home university. As a volunteer research assistant for my Master's degree, I worked on several research projects at the Bicocca Child & Baby Lab, where we investigated the neural mechanisms underlying the ability to integrate emotional information in infancy and behavioral reactions in response to social inclusion and exclusion. I wrote my thesis on the topic of matching emotional speech to emotional facial expression since I was interested in emotional development. Given that I am passionate about affective neuroscience, attention, and social interaction development using EEG and eye tracking, I have joined Professor Dr. Louisa kulke’s team to pursue my passion and conduct my research regarding socioemotional development and social interaction in infants and children using EEG and eye tracking.
