Christina is a PhD student at the Donders Institute. Her research focuses on creating methodologies that can help us understand developmental changes of the brain at the individual level.
She finished her Master’s thesis working with the Statistical Imaging and Predictive Clinical Neuroscience groups, after which her fascination for developmental disorders, such as autism, grew stronger. The notion in psychiatry that there is no average patient, biologically speaking, is what intrigues and motivates her research. Outside of science, she spends most of her time devouring fiction books and exercising.
