About me

While psychotherapy research was caught in methodological procedures based on the medical illness model for a long time, clinical practice was based on individual case conceptualization. We are overcoming the medical illness model now and the question what works for whom is once again posed. As a post-doctoral researcher in Julia Anna Glombiewski's Pain and Psychotherapy Research Lab, I want to contribute to the answer to this question. For that reason, I explore whether we can implement functional analysis with means of ecological momentary assessment in a patient's everyday life and use the data to build a personalized process-oriented psychotherapy.

In my doctoral thesis, I examined the questions related to macro-social and cultural determinants of mental health and even though they are not the main focus of my research anymore, I am still ready to discuss sociopolitical issues anytime becasue they are everywhere anyhow.
