Jennifer Them

B.Sc., research intern

Jennifer is a cognitive science student at the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen. From early on, she had a strong interest in mental disorders. After attending Nils’ seminar on computational psychiatry and learning about the possible applications of computational approaches to discover underlying causes of mental disorders, she decided to expand her knowledge in this area of expertise and subsequently joined the neuroMADLAB team.

Given the ongoing discussion of issues concerning scientific research practices such as the replication crisis, she is highly interested in open science. With her background in programming, which includes prior knowledge of Java, her work is mainly focused on app programming. The development of this app will support data crowdsourcing based on computational psychiatry principles to shed light on the neural correlates of binge eating disorder.
