I am a doctoral candidate in psychology at the chair of Quantitative Methods in Educational Science at the University of Potsdam. Broadly, I am interested in determinants of individual differences in lifespan development. How do cognitive and socioemotional skills vary across the population, and how are they related to vital life outcomes? Given that skills are malleable, what is their potential to foster a positive development? More specifically, under the supervision of Martin Brunner (University of Potsdam) and Manuel Voelkle (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), I am currently exploring whether the interplay between adolescent family background, cognitive and socioemotional skills and their relation to adult health, educational and occupational attainment is subject to historical changes. Further, I am interested in the underlying mechanisms of these changes and how (dis)advantages might accumulate over time. To tackle my research questions, I draw on methodology originating from different scientific disciplines, such as continuous time modeling and quantile regression analysis. I received my diploma in psychology (B.Sc., M.Sc.) from University of Vienna, and my B.Sc. in economics from Vienna University of Economics and Business.
