I have received the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship

February 12, 2019

I am happy and honoured to receive a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship for research on the neuroscience of tickling: cerebellar mechanisms and sensory prediction, which I will perform at Princeton University and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

Thank you to everyone who helped to support me in preparing for this Fellowship application. And of course I am very grateful to the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission for their generous support.
