  • Research

    Working as a clinical psychologist, I'm experiencing firsthand how effective psychotherapy can be – and how often it fails to sufficiently improve patients' well-being. This motivates me gaining deeper insights into underlying mechanisms that might help to improve therapeutic success in the long run. I'm particularly interested in questions on how psychotherapy relates to brain functioning in anxiety disorders: Do psychotherapeutic interventions shape brain functioning and what does this tell us about potential mechanisms of change? Can therapeutic success be improved by interventions targeting cortical areas associated to better outcome? Is there a link between patients' individual genetic predisposition, brain functioning and therapeutic success?
