Lisa Dinkler is a psychologist who studied in Jena and Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and a full-time PhD student at the GNC. In her PhD project Lisa investigates the development and course of eating disorders in association to neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs), and the mechanisms underlying the overlap of eating disorders and NDDs.
Applying twin methodology Lisa studies the extent to which genetic and environmental factors are shared between eating disorders and NDDs. In a large birth cohort of Japanese preschool children she investigates the prevalence and course of a wide range of childhood eating problems, including Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), and their association with NDDs. Lisa’s research also explores neuropsychological factors underlying the social difficulties common to eating disorders and NDDs with the help of eye tracking methodology. Previously, Lisa has been doing research on the effect of child maltreatment on NDDs, and she wrote her master’s thesis at the GNC on the association of childhood maltreatment with antisocial personality disorder and psychopathy among young adult offenders.
