Academic interests

My main research interests lie within the field of performance monitoring, i.e., the constant monitoring of our own behavior and that of our fellow human beings to successfully navigate in our environment. I am particularly interested in error and feedback signals (such as correct/incorrect performance signals or rewarding/punishing feedback outcomes) generated by the brain accompanying performance monitoring processes. Methods-wise, I am using electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to address my research questions in healthy individuals.

Here at UiO, I will be working on an exciting project investigating the influence of gut hormones on reward processing.

Courses taught

Currently, I am not teaching any courses at UiO.
