Kirsten works as Senior Scientist at the Department for Biological Psychology at Julius Maximillian University Wuerzburg, Germany. She earned her PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2018 at Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany, studying the neural bases of intelligence from a graph-theoretical Network Neuroscience perspective. In her current position she broadened her research interests to Virtual Reality applications in the study of pain-related fear and chronic pain. Concerning intelligence, her current projects strive for the further development of Network Neuroscience and Machine Learning-based Predictive Modelling approaches to enlighten the neurobiological bases of individual differences in general cognitive ability and personality.
