About

I studied psychology at the University of Würzburg in Würzburg (Germany) and received my diploma (equivalent to a Master’s degree) in 2009. I received my PhD from the University of Würzburg (Department of Psychology I) in 2014 and worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the LWL University Hospital of the Ruhr-University Bochum (Hospital for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry) in Hamm (Germany). Currently, I am a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Salzburg (Eating Behavior Laboratory) in Salzburg (Austria).

My research interests are psychological and psychophysiological aspects of eating behavior in general and of overeating in particular. These include, for example, food craving, dieting, restrained eating, emotional eating, impulsivity, night eating, binge eating, obesity, and „food addiction“.
