Research Interest

My major research project is under the research project GESA, whose full name is GEnder-Sensitivity Analyses of mental health trajectories and implications for prevention: A multi-cohort consortium – The GESA project consists of three major, ongoing, longitudinal cohorts in middle, southern and northeast Germany: The Gutenberg-Health-Study (GHS), the Monitoring Trends and Determinants in Cardiovascular Disease / Cooperative Health Research in the Augsburg Region (MONICA/KORA) and the Study of Health in Pomerania (SHIP).

My focus is researching the prevalence of loneliness and its behavioral (e.g. alcohol consumption) and physiological (e.g. proinflammatory cytokines, oxytocin) pathways, through which it increases morbidity and mortality.
