Dorothée Grevers joined the Center as a research associate in August 2016. Since then she has engaged in a variety of projects across the numerous research areas of the Center and is especially interested in space exploration, the neuroscience and psychology of extreme environments.

Her international background is multidisciplinary with a degree in biomedical science and further academic studies in various other fields including psychology, criminology, mathematics, and philosophy. Together with her experience in writing and editing, Grevers investigates how different extreme conditions impact the mind and brain.
