About me

In December 2018, I obtained my Master's degree (M.Sc.) in psychology at the Philipps-University of Marburg. Since January 2019, I am part of the Pain & Psychotherapy Research Lab of Prof. Julia Glombiewski at the University of Koblenz-Landau. I am currently working on my PhD thesis, examining the roles of expectations in deceptive and open-label placebo responses (supervisors: Prof. Julia Glombiewski, Dr. Tobias Kube). Parallel to my scientific work, I am in training to become a licensed psychotherapist (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).
