Research lines

I am interested in understanding cognitive and emotional processes contributing to abnormal eating behaviour and body dissatisfaction in eating disorders and obesity. I see myself as a translational researcher, transferring experimental findings into clinical applications. Therefore, I am working at the interface of fundamental, experimental research on clinical core features of eating disorders and obesity and testing innovative, experimentally based intervention techniques for maladaptive eating behaviour and body dissatisfaction in a clinical context.

Currently I am mainly working on three research lines:

1) Studying the potential causal role of attention processes and their malleability for abnormal eating behaviour in eating disorders and obesity.

2) investigating the role of maladaptive emotion regulation for abnormal eating and body dissatisfaction in eating disorders.

3) testing exposure-based interventions to tackle body dissatisfaction in eating disorders.
