I am a clinical psychologist studying the nature of human well-being and ways to improve it. My current research focus is on dissociation and affect regulation. I am a postdoctoral fellow funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin. I obtained my Ph.D. from Freie Universität Berlin, specializing in psychology. I am also a German board-certified cognitive-behavioral psychotherapist, trained at the Zentrum für Psychotherapie der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
