Short Profile

I'm a third-year Ph.D. student in Psychology and Neuroscience at The Ohio State University. My area of interest is Computational Psychiatry. Therefore, I am working with Prof. Trish Van Zandt, Prof. Eugene L. Arnold, Prof. Ian Krajbich, and Prof. Roger Ratcliff.

After conducting research and gaining knowledge in Experimental and Behavioral Economics at the University of Zurich with Prof. Roberto Weber and Prof. Ernst Fehr, I became interested in unraveling the interaction of the underlying cognitive, motivational and neural mechanisms that shape an individual’s behavior.

I am driven to provide a complementing perspective in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD, autism and related disorders by emphasizing the examination of individual differences, considering different phenotypes of a disease as well as linking biomedical, neuronal and behavioral measures using computational models.


  • Using the Diffusion Model (DDM) to understand Attention-Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) - with a special emphasis on ADHD subtypes (Analysis of Neuropsychological Performance in an ADHD sample from the ICAN study)

  • Applying the Diffusion Model (DDM) to the Neuropsychological Test Performances in an ADHD sample from the MTA study

  • On the implementation of Computational Psychiatry to study ADHD subtype differences across a range of neurocognitive tests

  • Emotional Face Recognition in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) - a cognitive computational modeling view

  • The effects of stress on visuo-spatial attention and social decision making
