Research Interest

My personal research interest is highly influenced by my background in mathematics and teacher education: I am interested in teachers (especially math teachers), their personal characteristics, and their impact on students’ characteristics. Furthermore I developed a strong interest in motivation research during my work as a student assistant in the motivation research project at the Hector Research Institute of Education Sciences and Psychology. Taking all of this into account, I will focus on students’ and math teachers’ motivation and their association in my dissertation.

My personal research interests already link different fields. LEAD provides an interdisciplinary structure that supplements the expertise I already benefit from at the Hector Institute. Being an associated LEAD member offers me a great chance to develop and to increase the quality of my work by getting to know different approaches.
