Anne joined the lab as a visiting scientist in 2019. In her PhD, she is working on the mechanistic link between acute multimodal responses to stress and psychopathology (supervised by Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Binder, MPI for Psychiatry, Munich). She joined neuroMADLAB to learn more about statistical and computational modeling of behavior and brain responses with hierarchical models.

Anne studied psychology at the University of Koblenz and Landau, where she completed her bachelor’s thesis in 2014. She then moved to the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg to study neuroscience for her master’s and did her thesis work at the lab of Prof. Dr. Martin Walter (now head of the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, University Hospital Jena). In 2017, she started her PhD at the IMPRS for Translational Psychiatry at the MPI for Psychiatry, Munich. As an avid pastry chef, Anne feels strongly about algorithms and reproducibility, and she will not take any half-baked answer.
