Research Interest

My research interests are the transitions in the German educational system and their influencing factors (e.g. class composition). Several different scientific disciplines are concerned with these transitions. Therefore, I benefit from LEAD's interdisciplinary structure. In addition, its structured program helps me improve my skills and knowledge.

Intersection: Education Sciences

Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Benjamin Nagengast, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Trautwein
