Personal profile

Research interests

In my postdoctoral research projects, I will investigate mediating effects of epigenetic markers on the relationship between different prenatal risk factors and the development of psychopathology in childhood, focussing especially on conduct disorder. I will employ epigenome-wide approaches and will also analyse long-term effects of epigenetic alterations on brain imaging phenotypes of high-risk adolescent populations.
