I did my Bachelor's and Master’s degree in psychology and biology at the University of Zurich. In 2020 I finished my Master with a thesis in which I investigated neurostructural changes in auditory-related brain areas in older adults with hearing loss.

Since June 2020 I am a Ph.D. student in the Computational Neuroscience of Speech & Hearing group at the Phonetics and Speech Sciences unit at the Department of Computational Linguistics. My research focuses on neural processes that underlie speech perception problems faced by older adults and how these processes are shaped by age-related changes in auditory and cognitive systems.
