Dr. Maria Blöchl

Postdoctoral Researcher in Psychology



I am a Post-doctoral Researcher at the Institute of Gender in Medicine at the Charité Berlin and the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig.

My research focusses on how physical health and mental health interact across the lifespan. Specifically, I am interested in the effect of physical limitations and vascular diseases (e.g. stroke) on depression and wellbeing during adulthood.

Within that line of work, I am also interested in understanding how social systems of inequality shape and constrain the development of physical health and mental health as people age.
