Dr. rer. nat. (Leipzig)
I obtained a Diploma in Psychology from the University of Leipzig, Germany in 1999. I completed my doctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig and was awarded a Doctor rerum naturalium (Dr. rer. nat.) degree by the University of Leipzig in 2002. After some time spent as a post-doctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute in Germany and an assistant professor at the University of Georgia in the United States, I joined NUS in 2006.
