I investigate individual differences in psychological mechanisms that contribute to onset and maintenance of post-traumatic stress disorder. Being a trial statistician and a methodology nerd, I am interested in a wide range of statistical advances, that help me answer these research questions.
I completed my PhD at Ludwig Maximilian University Munich, Germany, holding a PhD scholarship from the German National Academic Foundation (‘Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes’). In my PhD thesis, I worked on fit indices and factor scores in structural equation modelling.
I regularly review for Psychological Medicine, the European Journal of Psychotraumatology, and the Journal of Traumatic Stress.
I am an Associate with The Psychometrics Centre, University of Cambridge. I chair the early-career researchers' committee at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, and I am an Ambassador for the charity MQ, which funds mental health research.
