Annika Thierfelder is a PhD student at the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research (HIH) (since July 2020) and the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS) (since February 2021), jointly supervised with Dr. Winfried Ilg. After finishing her Bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science at the University of Tübingen, she followed up with a Master's degree in Neuroengineering at the Technical University of Munich, where she put her focus on systems with clinical applications. In her research, she analyses movement behaviours of patients' daily activities to evaluate the impact of medical conditions and therapeutical effects on their everyday lives and to make ground for assistive technology.
