Biography:

Born in Koblenz (Germany), I went to Medical School at the University of Mainz (Germany). After graduating, I started training in Neurology while finishing my thesis. When doing the necessary year of Psychiatry at the University Hospital of Psychiatry in Zürich (the renowned "Burghölzli"), I enjoyed Psychiatry that much that I changed to Psychiatry and finished my training in Psychiatry in 2010. In parallel, I had started doing research in a group focusing on the neurofunctional circuits of emotion and emotion regulation in affective and anxiety disorders. When I received a fellowship from the Swiss National Foundation, I moved to Cambridge to work in the group of Barbara Sahakian and Trevor Robbins.

My research is concerned with the interaction of emotion and cognition - how cognitive processes regulate emotion, how emotion interacts with cognition - with a particular focus on the neurofunctional processes. These processes are disturbed in affective disorders such as anxiety disorders, OCD, depression and borderline personality disorders. Therapeutic interventions such as psychotherapy and psychopharmacotherapy try to improve and restore these functions. Understanding these processes in healthy subjects, the disturbances in affective disorders and the changes due to treatment could help improving diagnosis and treatments in psychiatry.

Aiming at increasing knowledge in this field, I use experimental medicine methods, functional magnetic resonance imaging and neuropsychological methods in healthy subjects and patients. Furthermore, I am interested in translational models of these disorders.
