I work on metacognition in general, and in motor metacognition in particular. I am interested in how we can best measure the brain’s ability to monitor and control itself. In the case of motor metacognition, I also wonder how this ability interacts with our ability to learn a new motor skill. I use mostly behavioural methods, but also sometimes use neuroimaging (EEG/MRI).
On an independent line, I am also excited about the possibilities of collecting data online.

I am a post-doc at the Hector Research Institute of Education Sciences and Psychology. In my research, I investigate the development of dispositional interests over the course of adolescence. Besides mechanisms that can facilitate long-term change processes in interests, I am also examining statistical methods for modelling longitudinal data and their ability to account for unobserved confounders when estimating causal effects.

My expertise lies in the field of (social) network analyses in the context of educational psychology. My current research interests focus on understanding domain-specific curiosity, social integration of gifted students and functional brain networks of gifted students. As the lab organizer, I am responsible for ensuring smooth and efficient operations within our research team.

I am a personality psychologist who incorporates interdisciplinary perspectives to investigate curiosity, exploration, and information-seeking, alongside broader interests in personality development and the intersection of motivation and personality. Some of my current research questions at the Hector Institute include how different disciplines conceptualise curiosity, personality change over intermediate timescales, and the utility of personality psychology for education research.

My current research interests are high-achieving students and peer relationships. Typically, I conduct secondary data analyses in my research, using large-scale student assessment data. I am presently a post-doc at the Hector Research Institute. From my prior work in a research data center I bring a passion for Open Science (and Open Data in particular), replicability and research transparency.

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Hector Research Institute for Education Science and Psychology at the University of Tübingen working in the field of developmental neuroscience with a focus on intellectually gifted children. My interest lies in how the spatial organization of the cerebral cortex subserves learning and cognition in the human brain. To this end, I pursue questions about the developmental mechanisms by which the spatial arrangement of functions may emerge in the cerebral cortex, and its ramifications for cognitive abilities.
I am a post-doc at the Hector Institute of Education Sciences and Psychology. I obtained my PhD in Psychology from Nagoya University in Japan. My current research aim is to understand the human sociality and emotion underlying decision-making. In particular, I focus on the psychological and neural process when socially excluding others and being excluded from the group.

I am a post-doc at the Hector Institute of Educational Sciences and Psychology. I am working towards an algorithmic- and computational-level understanding of various aspects of human exploration, including the emergence of situational curiosity as motivation for information-seeking, emergence of interest and curiosity traits, generation, selection, and pursuit of goals. My hope is to develop knowledge that can be useful in educational contexts. I rely on theory-driven statistical/cognitive modeling to explain data collected in behavioral experiments.

My research focuses on identifying and testing strategies to boost individuals’ motivation for learning. Prior to starting my PhD, I did my Masters in Neural and Behavioural Sciences at the University of Tübingen.
I am interested in social factors, e.g. interactions with teachers and peers, causing motivated or unmotivated behaviors in pupils. I approach this research primarily by conducting secondary analyses of large-scale datasets. I see the goal of my research in providing information that can be used to create interventions to increase student motivation. I like to also address psychometric research questions.

I am a PhD student at the Hector Research Institute for Education Science and Psychology at the University of Tübingen. My project will focus on how mental health issues and their implications on motivation and emotion impact our ability to achieve our goals. Some of my interests revolve around self-regulation and self-regulated learning as well as educational psychology.

My area of interest lies in the effect of social factors on challenge seeking behaviour. I use neuroimaging techniques (fMRI) and behavioral tasks to investigate how the relationship with peers can promote or undermine individuals’ challenge seeking tendencies.
