Research description

My main clinical and research interests concern the field of geriatric psychiatry. My PhD project focuses on the interplay between depression and the burden of somatic diseases in late life, exploring both symptoms heterogeneity and disease patterns. Further, I am involved in research on somatic and psychosocial determinants of mental and cognitive health in old age.
