Research Statement

Working as a medical doctor in child and adolescent psychiatry, I would like to understand more about the underlying mechanisms and causes of psychiatric disorders. Currently, my research focuses on various aspects of anorexia nervosa such as the influence of hormones or the gut microbiome on disease onset and progression.
