Alessandra Bertone, BSc

In June 2015 I completed my bachelor degree in Cognitive Psychology and Neuroscience at Jacobs University Bremen. Now, three months later, I am working as a research associate at this laboratory. As my research interest lie in empathy, human interactions, and emotion regulation, I believe this job will provide me with the necessary practical work experience to better prepare me in my pursuit for further education.

I also have a vast interest in Clinical Psychology, especially with regards to personality and anxiety disorders. In fact my bachelor thesis was a literature research on childhood trauma and post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD); where I looked into both the behavioural manifestation and neurobiological changes that may be present. My ultimate goal is to become a Clinical Psychologist.
