Maryam Karimian has obtained her doctoral degree in cognitive computational neuroscience from Maastricht University in the Netherlands. With a background in Physics, her research during her PhD studies centered on the collective dynamics of neural oscillations. This focus aimed to uncover the implications of such dynamics for visual perception and learning. Currently, Maryam holds a position as a postdoctoral researcher in the SCIoI cluster of excellence and the Biology department at Humboldt University. Her research is centered on the domain of human collective information processing and decision-making. Through her work, Maryam is dedicated to understanding the fundamental mechanisms and key factors that drive and affect the spread of behavior within human groups.
