Biography

I completed a BSc in Biology and a MSc in Neurobiology and Behaviour (2012) at the University of Halle and Leipzig in collaboration with the Max-Planck-Institute of Human Cognitive and Brain Science. After that, I did a PhD in Neuroscience (2017) at the Georg-August-University Goettingen where I investigated the neural correlates of reward and saliency processing in schizophrenia using fMRI. In 2017, I received a Dres. Majic/Majic-Schlez Postdoctoral Research Grant and worked as Research Associate in the Department of General Psychiatry at Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg. 

In October 2018, I joined King’s College London as Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Psychosis Studies. I am working on the Baseline Biomarker Check (BBC) Study aiming to identify predictors of treatment response in patients with a first episode of psychosis. Besides, I work on research projects combining multimodal data to predict outcome in subjects at clinical high risk of developing psychosis, including NEUTOP and EU-GEI. 

Research Interests

  • Predictors of treatment response in first-episode psychosis 
  • Psychosis risk and protective factors  
  • Neuroimaging 
  • Imaging genetics (polygenic risk score analysis, gene-environment interaction, GWAS)
