She completed post-doctoral studies in the muscle-bone-relationship at the Pediatric Clinic I at the University Heidelberg, Germany, from 2009 to 2011. From 2009 onwards she taught at the University Heidelberg, Germany. While at the Children's Hospital, she developed an interest in outcome parameters for the characterization and surveillance of early cystic fibrosis lung fibrosis.
