My main area of interest are the methods for studying how individuals change over time. For my master thesis in psychology at the Humboldt University of Berlin I introduced LASSO regularization to dynamic panel models. The objective was to improve the generalizability of models built in small samples.
As a doctoral student I will continue this research with the team of Manuel Völkle. Building on my previous work I want to expand LASSO regularization to network models built within the continuous time framework. This could provide new insight in the dynamics of change over time.
