Research Statement

My research interests comprise the development of analytical strategies for dealing with endocrine time series and the extraction of parameters that directly reflect known their kinetic properties. Furthermore I'm investigating diagnostic markers (psychometric and genetic) for interindividually varying patterns in early sensory processing and psychosocial stress.
