I am a PhD student working in the Experimental Clinical Psychology Group, Department of Psychology I, Julius-Maximilians-University of Würzburg, Germany, doing research on approach-avoidance behavior in social contexts and affective neuroscience. As part of the translational RTG2660 on approach-avoidance, I am interested in approach and avoidance behavior in social contexts. I love trying out new methods and research approaches especially to increase ecological validity of our results. Currently, I am learning a lot about neural signal processing, machine learning-based approaches, and virtual reality as a research method.
