Biography

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the chair of Quantitative Methods in Educational Sciences at the University of Potsdam, Germany. My research interests include the interplay of students' achievement and achievement motivation, gender differences in educational contexts, giftedness and high achievement, as well as attitudes and stereotypes of (pre-service) teachers. From a methodological perspective, I am particularly interested in research syntheses with educational large-scale assessment data. Research transparency is important to me.
