Dr. Damian Herz

DFF Postdoctoral Fellow

Damian studied medicine at the University of Cologne, Germany, and worked as a Resident Neurologist at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Damian completed his Ph.D. at the University of Copenhagen in 2014. He worked in the Brown Group at the MRC BNDU as a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow from 2015 to 2017, before re-joining the Group in 2020 to carry out research supported by the Independent Research Fund Denmark.

Damian’s main research interest is to examine mechanisms underlying movement control and decision making, and how these are altered in people with Parkinson’s disease. He is currently investigating whether movement control and decision making can be modified through adaptive Deep Brain Stimulation.
