About my research

My research is focused on evaluating the influence of crosssectional and longitudinal variables on postpartum depression.
For that reason I am analysing a data set of roughly 300 women who recently gave birth.
This gives me the opportunity to evaluate the time dependent effects of stress, mood and other variables on postpartum depression and on each other. To accomplish this I use moderation and mediation analysis to better distinguish between the direct and indirect effects on postpartum depression.
