  • Profile

    I joined the UvA as an assistant professor in March 2021.

    I finished my PhD in the field of organizational psychology under the supervision of Dr. Bertolt Meyer at TU Chemnitz, Germany in 2019.  In my dissertation, I analyzed the origins and developments of leadership perceptions with a specific focus on interpersonal behavior. In general, I aim at integrating theoretical and methodological approaches from psychology, biology, computer science, and political science in my research projects. During my PhD, I worked as a researcher and teacher at the Professorship of Organizational Psychology and the Professorship of Social Psychology at TU Chemnitz. From 2019 to 2021, I worked as an assistant professor (Organizational Psychology) at VU Amsterdam.
