About me

Hi my name is Gordon, welcome to my website.

I am a postdoctoral researcher at University College London working at the Institute of Behavioral Neuroscience in Hugo Spier’s Spatial Cognition Lab and all content on these pages expresses exclusively my personal views. My main research interest is how sleep influences memory functions. Therefore, after studying psychology at the University of Mainz, I pursued a PhD with Jan Born at the University of Tübingen, which mainly focussed on the neurochemicals that are relevant for strengthening memory during sleep. Recently, I published a review article summarizing the main findings of the sleep and memory field that is intendet to make knowledge about the beneficial effects of sleep on memory accessible to a broad readership and encourage application. Currently, I am undertaking studies that investigate how sleep influences complex associative memory and reward representations in fMRI. Here you can find my short CV and my ORCID.
