Researcher in the ERC-funded project Transdiagnostic views on eating disorders and obesity and new approaches for treatment
I studied psychology at the University of Würzburg (Germany) and received my diploma in 2009 and my PhD in 2014. Before I joined the Eating Behavior Laboratory at the University of Salzburg (Austria) in 2015, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the LWL University Hospital Hamm of the Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany). I have taught courses on self- and emotion regulation and on topics in clinical and health psychology. I have reviewed manuscripts for more than 80 different scientific journals and grant proposals for four different funding agencies. In 2013, I founded the specialty section Eating Behavior of the journal Frontiers in Psychology, for which I served as specialty chief editor until 2017. I was also an editorial board member of the journal SpringerPlus. Currently, I am on the editorial boards of the journals BMC Psychology (associate editor), Current Addiction Reports (section editor), Obesity Science & Practice (editorial board member), Palgrave Communications (associate editor), and PLoS ONE (academic editor).
