Biography

Dr Julian Mutz is a post-doctoral research associate at the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre at King’s College London. He completed his undergraduate training in Psychology (BSc) at the University of Groningen and University College London. He earned a postgraduate degree in Affective Disorders (MSc) from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King’s College London and is a graduate of the International Master in Affective Neuroscience (MSc) of Maastricht University. Dr Mutz obtained a PhD in Epidemiology and Population Health from King’s College London where he explored predictors of health and ageing in the UK Biobank study. Prior to that he worked as a research assistant in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Imperial College London. He is the author of 26 scientific articles published in peer-reviewed journals, including in the BMJ, BMC Medicine, the British Journal of Psychiatry and the International Journal of Epidemiology. He has served as an ad-hoc reviewer for 28 peer-reviewed journals across multiple disciplines. Dr Mutz’s research interests include population health, the epidemiology of psychiatric disorders, frailty and biological markers of ageing, and evidence synthesis studies of brain stimulation treatments for depression and bipolar disorder.
