Postdoctoral Researcher


Research summary

The core interest of my work is to understand how social relationships form behavior and vice versa. In particular, I am interested in examining the social dimension of aggressive behavior, including ostracism, bullying, and intergroup conflict.

For this purpose, I utilize a combination of different methodological approaches with a special emphasis on social network analysis.


I studied psychology at the Freie Universität Berlin from 2003 to 2008, before I received a predoctoral scholarship from the Max Planck Institute for Human Development (LIFE Research School). After my doctoral degree in 2011, I worked as a research scientist in Berlin and since 2013 at the University of Oxford.

Currently, I am a Junior Research Fellow of New College.
