My Feodor Lynen Fellowship at MIT simultaneously supported both my career and my family. My postdoc with Professor Aude Oliva in collaboration with Professor Nancy Kanwisher has allowed me to progress in my research, which combines machine learning with human behavioral and neural data to analyze the way visual recognition works in humans. The prestige of the Lynen Fellowship has also opened doors to new opportunities after my postdoc. The childcare allowance provided by the Humboldt Foundation to Lynen fellows made our dual career family’s stay in the United States possible. This Fellowship has changed the trajectory of my career and has allowed my family to share this special time.
