My main research interest involves imaging genetics and its applications to basic and applied research. My research at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics mainly focuses on the genetic basis of human language network and brain asymmetry. That is, how the molecular genetic infrastructure supports the language-ready brain (e.g., leftward asymmetry of the language network) and gives rise to individual differences in language network and language performance.
In addition, I am interested in neuroimaging and network modeling methodologies for individual differences studies of brain structure and function.
