Research interests

I work as a psychological psychotherapist (cognitive behaviour therapy), supervisor and researcher at the Outpatient Clinic for Social Interaction and the Social Cognition Group of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Within this framework, I offer diagnostics, consultation as well as individual and group psychotherapy for people on the autism spectrum and people with other difficulties in social interaction (e.g. depression, anxiety, personality disorders). I am especially interested in research focussing on different methods of ASD diagnostics in adulthood as well as different psychotherapy approaches for adults with high-functioning ASD (e.g., individual vs. group approaches as well as face-to-face vs. technology-based trainings). At present, I am part of a large, multi-center clinical trial investigating the efficacy of two different treatments for people with ASD (group therapy vs. Online training; FASTER/SCOTT study).
