Curriculum vitae

Stephanie Homan completed her PhD at the University of Bern, Switzerland, in 2019, and currently works as a postdoc and psychologist at the University Hospital of Psychiatry in Zurich, Switzerland. As a clinician researcher, she is interested in the question of whether or not patients respond differently to interventions (psychopharmacology, brain stimulation, psychotherapy). She has been managing the Swiss National Science project “SIMON - Suicide Ideation Monitoring”. The study’s aim is to test the feasibility of a digital protocol to monitor and predict suicidal ideation in patients after hospital discharge. Currently, she is the senior postdoc fellow in the SNF project "MULTICAST - A MULTIdisCiplinary Approach to predict and treat SuicidaliTy" that aims to (1) identify novel ways to predict suicidal ideations (SI), (2) investigate SI mechanisms, and (3) develop smartphone-based treatment modules.
