Expertises

My previous research has been focused on investigating the functional development of the brain in healthy children and adolescents linked to differences in the personality trait neuroticism - a well-known risk factor for anxiety and mood disorders that typically have their onset in childhood and adolescence. I have analyzed resting-state functional MRI to study the functional brain network that subserves communication between regions of the brain. To quantify properties of the brain network, I have applied graph theory to e.g. assess how efficiently information is exchanged throughout the brain.

Current research

My current research aims at investigating the course of illness in schizophrenia. This long-term follow-up study of initially antipsychotic-naïve first-episode schizophrenia patients offers a unique opportunity to investigate and identify outcome biomarkers based on brain structure as well as cognition and behavior.
