Research Interest

Working as an assistant doctor at the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Tübingen, my field of interest is to link clinical aspects with theory. In particular I want to explore aspects of treatment outcome and social and educational reintegration.

With my current project I plan to identify predictors for a successful treatment meaning an improved school, social and family integration after discharge. I will focus on factors not originating in the patients themselves but in their school and family environment.

For this interdisciplinary subject, the exchange of views and information with LEAD’s high profile researchers from other core research fields provides excellent input for my current work. Further, LEAD’s scientific program is an invaluable opportunity to enrich my skills and comprehension in evidence-based research techniques and will be an important keystone for my research career.
