Dr. rer. med. Marie-Theres Meemken

Scientific researcher

Main Focus

I am fascinated with the different perspectives on human health and behaviour and have worked with data from neurophysiological experiments, using electroencephalography (EEG) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as behavioural tasks, questionnaires and anthropometric measures.

I strongly believe in the merit of diversity in science as well as people first language, not only in the field of obesity.
