Research Interest

My research primarly focuses on effective instructional design as well as classroom processes and their interactions with individual learner prerequisites. My main research goal is a more systematic understanding of classroom processes through which I want to contribute to an improvement of prevalent teaching methods, teacher competencies and overall teaching quality.

Specifically, my PhD projects focus on social comparisons in classrooms and aim to identify underlying factors and mechanisms that affect social comparisons in classrooms leading to specific motivational or performance-specific outcomes among learners. In addition, I am interested in effects of adaptive digital teaching and learning tools and aim to investigate how to offset detrimental effects of social comparisons in classrooms. My overall approach combines social and motivational psychology with educational science, and implements innovative research tools, such as immersive virtual reality classrooms.

As my research draws on different scientific disciplines, I benefit from LEAD’s interdisciplinary and international structure. Being part of the LEAD research network offers me the opportunity to work with and learn from diverse experts sharing their experiences and skills.
