Nathalie Claus

Nathalie graduated from LMU Munich with a bachelor’s degree in Communications as well as a Bsc in Psychology. Her bachelor’s projects focused on depression in children and adolescents, taking into account both how adolescents express their depression and self-harm online and how depression may be prevented, particularly in the offspring of depressed parents. She then completed her Msc in Clinical Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience (LMU Munich), working on a research project that employs psychological networks to better understand the link between anxiety symptoms, cognitive biases and attentional control.


At Trinity, she is a visiting Research Assistant working on numerous projects, such as the development of a tool to help make personalised predictions about the effectiveness of anti-depressants, or the identification of early markers of depression and Alzheimer’s disease via gamified cognitive tests.
