Lynn Fehlbaum has a background in the area of cognitive and socioaffective neuroscience. After completing her master studies at the University of Zurich she worked at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry of the Psychiatric University Hospital Basel and University of Basel from 2014 to 2018. Her main focus during her doctoral studies was the investigation of the neurodevelopment of children and adolescents with and without conduct disorder within a European multi-center study (FemNAT-CD) and a project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. She wrote her PhD thesis on the neuronal underpinnings of emotion processing and regulation in children and adolescents with and without disruptive behavior and defended in 2018. Since 2018 she works as a postdoctoral research associate for the KidCAT project, which aims to investigate the early neuronal and behavioral correlates of emotion and language development. Starting spring 2019 Lynn Fehlbaum will be responsible for overseeing and implementing longitudinal, cross-sectional and intergenerational projects targeting socioemotional and language development at the Jacobs Center for Productive Youth Development at the University of Zurich.
