Daniel completed a B.Sc. in Biomedical science at Umeå University, Sweden, and a M.Sc. in Cognitive Neuroscience at Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. For the thesis for his master’s degree he investigated a link between object memory and spatial memory using fMRI and virtual reality. After his master, he worked as a research assistant at the Donders Institute in Nijmegen where he investigated developmental dyslexia and abnormalities in neuronal migration with structural MRI methods. Following that, he worked as a research assistant in a project at the Donders Institute where he was part of creating a pipeline for MRI cross registration and hippocampal segmentation, which could then be able to be used as a pool for predictive studies on Alzheimer’s disease.
In 2020 he joined the O’BRAIN lab as a PhD candidate in the Helsinki part of the group, where he is investigating how diet affects the dopaminergic system and how that in turn affects reward predictions.
