Research Interests

I am a behavioral researcher working in developmental and pedagogical psychology. I study gestural communication, social learning and classroom management, and am currently leading a three-year DFG project on young children’s understanding of graphic symbols. I am working at the Chair for Empirical School and Classroom Research at Leipzig University and support the method development team of the Department for Comparative Cultural Psychology at the MPI for Evolutionary Anthropology.
