About

I am currently working as Research Professor and vice head of the Mental Health Unit. Goals of my research activities are to answer the questions: By which mechanisms the metabolic, circadian and sleep-wake cycles link and contribute to mood? How the interaction between light-dark and warm-cold transitions contributes to mood? My subsequent aims on the basis of these data are to create measures for health promotion and suicide prevention.
