Zsuzsika is a cognitive neuroscientist, specialized in neuroimaging in the field of human decision-making and action control. She combines behavioral paradigms and neuroimaging techniques including MRI and EEG, with computational models of brain and behavior. She completed her PhD in 2013 at the Department of Psychiatry, VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam. Afterwards, she worked as a postdoc at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Boston USA and at the Max-Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig Germany, further specializing in the field of Computational Psychiatry. Currently she is Assistant Professor at the department of Cognitive Psychology, Leiden University and Leiden Institute for Brain and Cognition. There she studies neural and functional mechanisms of metacontrol, focusing on flexible goal-directed behavior and model-based neuroimaging. Next to research, she spends her time teaching Bachelor- and Master courses in the field of cognitive neuroscience. She also chairs/coordinates the LIBC-affiliated multidisciplinary minor Brain and Cognition.
