External LIFE Fellow since 2024, Universität Potsdam

I am a PhD student at the University of Potsdam, working in the research group of Prof. Dr. Rebecca Lazarides, "School and Instructional Research." My academic journey began with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education Science and European Ethnology from Humboldt University Berlin, followed by a Master of Arts in Educational Science with a specialization in consulting and organizational development from TU Berlin.
My dissertation project investigates motivational-affective processes in learning and instruction. Particularly, I am interested in the relations between teachers’ motivational-affective beliefs and their instructional behavior. To investigate these relations, I examine associations between teachers’ motivational beliefs and their instructional behavior by conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis (macro-level approach). Furthermore, I apply AI-based methodologies to examine the relations between pre-service teachers’ motivation and their motivational language in class (micro-level approach).

Dissertation project:
Situation-Specific Motivational-Affective Dynamics in Social Interactions: Macro- and Micro-Level Perspectives
