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 data analytic flexibility. I am an active advocate for increased research transparency and have frequently given talks on the topic.

I received my doctoral degree as a fellow of the International Max Planck Research School on the Life Course in 2019 and now work at the Wilhelm Wundt Institute for Psychology, Leipzig University. Right now I’m on maternal leave with my second child and will return to work in July 2023.

Together with Anne Scheel, Malte Elson, and Ruben Arslan, I blog at The 100% CI. I’m also maintaining the website of the Open Science Network Leipzig, a collection of all things Open Science happening in Leipzig.

If you want to get in touch with me, I’m fairly active on Twitter.
