Since the early time of my dissertation project, my research has focused on studying mental disorders from a translational point of view by examining primary behavioral functions and dysfunction of various neuroendocrine, molecular, cellular, and genetic pathways from an integrative, multi-systems point of view.
I have completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin in Germany and the Department of Psychology at the Free University, Berlin (degree: summa cum laude – graduate with honors). I did my postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and was the Florence Irving Assistant Professor and Director of Computational Medicine and Artificial Intelligence in the Department of Emergency Medicine and Psychiatry at Columbia University before joining NYU in January 2023. I am currently Co-Director of the Computational Psychiatry Program and Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Population Health at NYU Grossmann School of Medicine.
I investigate longitudinal and prospective studies to identify complex sets of early predictors. My primary research focus centered on precision psychiatry by applying advanced computational methods to improve individualized risk stratification and individualized treatment allocation, leading to publications in Nature Medicine, JAMA Psychiatry, and Molecular Psychiatry as the first and corresponding author. I have been awarded several awards and national and international grants, e.g., I am currently the PI of two R01s funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and PI of a grant funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
