Greta Hansen joined the Institute for Health and Behaviour within the Department of Behavioural and Cognitive Sciences as a PhD student in December 2019 under the supervision of assistant professor Dr. André Schulz.

She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology as well as her Master’s degree in Psychological Intervention (clinical domain) at the University of Luxembourg whilst also studying abroad at University of Heidelberg and University of Zurich.

Her Master thesis comprised the relation of mental disorders and cardiac interoception in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, thus focused on predictors of mental health in chronic gastrointestinal conditions (project: PREMENTI).

In her doctoral project Interoception and Chronic Stress (INSTRESS), she investigates alterations in the perception of internal bodily states and physiological stress responses in schoolteachers. Firstly, paying particular focus on the psychobiological processes underlying the generation of physical symptoms under conditions of chronic stress and subsequently the development of those mental disorders which incorporate such physical symptoms (e.g. panic disorder, somatoform disorders, depression).
