Since 2013 I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Institute of Medical Psychology and Behavioural Neurobiology and the fMEG Centre at the University of Tübingen in Germany. I am a nutritional neuroscientist (PhD obtained at Utrecht University, the Netherlands) with a main interest in understanding how the human brain represents eating behaviour, and additionally the relationship between the brain and obesity. In particular I am interested in the neural circuits of taste, smell, and flavour preferences and its effect on food choice and therefore feeding behaviour.
In the Nudge‐it project EKUT will manly focus on the optimization of neuroimaging in food choice. Here I will be involved in the fMRI research to understand how hunger and satiety affect neural activity related to food choice and the utility of fNIRS.
