Academic positions:


I am interested in the underlying mechanisms of eating disorders, overweight and obesity. This is why I investigate how individuals with binge eating disorder, anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa differ from individuals without these disorders regarding their perception of food and their food decisions. For my research, I mainly use mouse-tracking and electroencephalography (EEG).
