Linda Betz (now at GAIA)

I studied at University of Regensburg (Germany), University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio (Texas, USA) and Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (Germany). During my master’s degree from 2016 to 2018, I gained scientific knowledge at the Munich site of the PRONIA multicenter study. I joined Kambeitz Lab in February 2019 and currently, I'm involved in a PhD project at the intersection of psychiatry, epidemiology, and methodology, using data-driven statistical methods such as probabilistic graphical modelling, machine learning and meta-analysis to reveal complex patterns in behaviour and the environment. I am particularly interested in the role of early and recent stressful life events in onset, progression and maintenance of mental disorders.
