I am originally from Germany but moved abroad in 2016 to study in the Netherlands and the UK. My interest in human health motivated me to study (neuro-)psychology and gain insight into clinical practice through internships in care facilities and hospitals.
I have an optimistic and positive attitude and am happy to support others. I am patient, curious, and have an eye for detail.
During my PhD trajectory, I was part of the INDUCT network and my research focussed on technology and dementia (follow links for details).
Now as a postdoctoral researcher, I will work on the development and implementation of digital interventions to support people living with chronic pain.
Research interests include:
- Momentary assessments, the experience sampling method, and other forms of (digital) self-monitoring and digital diaries
- eHealth solutions (e.g. webpages, smartphone apps to promote health)
- Health as a holistic concept, including physical, emotional and social aspects
- Chronic pain
- Treating and preventing disorders
- Complex interventions, behavioural changes mechanisms, effectiveness and implementation
- Older adults with and without cognitive impairments (e.g. MCI, dementia, caregivers)
