Dr. rer. nat. Stefanie Liebe
Resident in Neurology and Epileptology / Clinician Scientist
I am a Clinician Scientist interested in clinical and cognitive neurophysiology. I use AI and Machine Learning methods for research questions in systems neuroscience with a specific focus on epilepsy and memory.

I am a Clinician Scientist with research interests at the intersection of systems neuroscience and epilepsy, with degrees in medicine and psychology. During my PhD in Neuroscience at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen I studied neural mechanisms underlying visual memory using extracellular recordings of single unit activity and local field potentials. After a post-doc in the UK, I continued to work on similar topics using intracranial recordings from human epilepsy patients at the University Hospital Bonn. Recently I became interested in applying AI methods to better understand neural mechanisms of memory and characterising neurological diseases such as epilepsy.
