Institution: Technische Universität Dresden, Germany (Chair of Behavioural Epidemiology).
Supervisory team: Professor Katja Beesdo-Baum.
Position: Research assistant and PhD Student.
Current research: I am interested in understand epidemiological basics of suicidal behaviours like ideation, plan and attempt as well as their association with short-term mood and behaviour dynamics in daily life. Thereby, my PhD give new insights into the real life experiences of these behaviours in adolescents and young adults.
- Ecological Momentary Assessment
- Use of new methods in suicide research like network analysis
- Co-occurrence of suicidal behaviour with non-suicidal self-injurious behaviour

Can help with: Everyone is more than welcome to ask me about learning network analyses in R oder how to conduct population-based longitudinal studies. Also, I could help with research visits e.g. in Germany.
