Dr. Annabel Müller-Stierlin is research associate at the Department of Psychiatry II of the Ulm University. Her research projects cover a broad spectrum of methods, such as clinical studies, health care research and implementation science. All projects are characterized by interprofessional project groups, whereby different perspectives (patients, relatives, professionals) are considered. Her strength is the interdisciplinary way of working, which has developed through her studies in natural science (study of nutritional science and study of medical biometrics) and the many years of professional experience in psychiatric health care research surrounded by physicians, psychologists and sociologists.
