Sonja is a cognitive neurologist, working with patients with memory, attention, language and other cognitive problems. Her research explores mechanisms of memory formation, and how this relates to the construction of individual and collective identity. In particular, Sonja is interested in how the personally experienced and media-captured and disseminated information interact in this process. In addition to her scientific research, she explores these themes through narrative and artistic inquiry, combining mixed media installation and writing.
