Leonie attained a BSc in Biology from The University of Hamburg and a M.Sc. in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Amsterdam before beginning her PhD in Hester lab in 2015. Leonie uses a combination of behavioural studies and event-related fMRI, working with both with Rob Hester and Charles Malpas, to investigate brain regions which are involved in the effects of positive and negative feedback on learning from errors in dependent smokers, and the underlying patterns of connectivity between these regions.
