  • Nonsuicidal self-injury disorder
  • Emotion regulation
  • Emotional Mimicry
  • Eating disorders


Research fields

 I’m interested in emotion regulation factors and psychophysiological factors that contribute to psychopathology in children and adolescents. In a previous research project under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Tina In-Albon (University of Koblenz- Landau) and Dr. Marc Schmid (Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, University of Basel) I examined the Emotional Mimicry effect (imitation of the emotional facial expression of another person) in female adolescents with nonsuicidal self-injury disorder (NSSI). In addition to NSSI, I’m also interested in eating disorders, which might be a research area for my coming projects.
