Paul completed a B.Sc. in Biology at the University of Düsseldorf and a Neuroscience Master at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. For his M.Sc. thesis, he investigated the neurophysiological correlates of resting-state networks in a simultaneously acquired EEG/fMRI dataset. After his Master, he started to work as a research assistant at the Max Planck Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, where he investigated rehabilitation methods for stroke patients and EEG alterations associated with aging. In 2020 Paul joined the O’Brain Lab where he investigates how different styles of diet influence the dopaminergic system and cognitive functions.
