I am a personality psychologist by training and my work covers a broad range of topics, including the effects of birth order, age patterns in personality, and the correlates and determinants of subjective well-being. My methodological interests include causal inference on the basis of observational data and flexibility in data analysis. I am an active advocate for increased research transparency and have frequently given talks on the topic.
I recently finished my doctoral degree as a fellow of the International Max Planck Research School on the Life Course and am currently on maternal leave at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development. My home base is at the Department of Psychology, University of Leipzig.
