Daniela Zöller has joint the MIP:Lab in 2015 as a PhD student under co-supervision of Prof. Dimitri Van De Ville and Prof. Marie Schaer (Developmental Imaging and Psychopathology Laboratory, University of Geneva). In her research she focuses on the developmental analysis of resting-state fMRI data in patients with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, a genetic disease that comes with a high-risk of schizophrenia. In particular, she uses statistical models to investigate functional alterations in brain signal fluctuations and their relation to psychosis and cognitive impairments.
Daniela studied Electrical Engineering and Information Technology in the Franco-German double master program of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Grenoble INP – Phelma where she specialized in Control Systems and Signal and Image Processing, Communication and Multimedia. She obtained her MSc (KIT) and Engineering Diploma (Grenoble INP – Phelma) in 2015. In her Master thesis at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBT) in Karlsruhe she worked on the “Statistical Analysis of Propagation Patterns in Intracardiac Panoramic Mapping Data” using frequency domain Granger causality to reveal causal relations in intracardiac electrograms.
