Research

My current research aims at constructing algorithmic model for storage and retrieval of episodic memory. The model involves interdependence of multiple memory systems, especially the interaction between semantic and episodic system. By this model we simulate experimental findings about, for example, how different semantic knowledge play a role in episodic memory encoding, storage  and retrieval.

Background

I completed my Master degree in system biology of brain and behaviour at Bielefeld University, Germany. My thesis was about  neural network modeling of a memory architecture containing procedural and declarative elements. Afterward I worked as a researcher in TU Graz, institute for theoretical computer science, where I used machine learning methods to investigate the behavior of  spiking neural network with synaptic plasticity.
