Research interests

I am currently enrolled in the PhD program “Endocrinology and Metabolism” in the lab of Priv.-Doz. Dr. Zeyda. I am employed at the Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Medical University Vienna, where I focus my research on childhood obesity and lipid metabolism disorders. In my PhD project I study metabolic markers and epigenetic changes in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in morbidly obese children and adolescents.
