Dr. Kristina Eichel


Kristina did her Diploma in Psychology at University of Cologne in 2012. She finished her PhD in 2016 on mindfulness and error processing focusing on event-related component analyses with electroencephalogram (EEG). In 2015, she was already a visiting research fellow at the Clinical Affective Neuroscience lab for six months, when she helped to collect and analyze the EEG data of the “Dismantling Mindfulness” project and helped with the development of the codebook of influencing factors of the VCE project. In 2016, she worked for eight months in the Social Cognition Center Cologne, doing research on social comparison, envy and mindfulness. During the same time, she was a lecturer in inference statistics at Fresenius College Cologne. While working on her PhD, Kristina started doing a master in Cognitive Science at Ruhr-University Bochum to deepen her knowledge in philosophy of mind. She started as a postdoc at the lab in February 2017, working on several projects with all the research assistants, analyzing the EEG data and doing statistical analyses. When she is not working in the lab, Kristina likes to think about social justice, go out dancing, explore NYC, write stories and paint pictures or take photos.
