About me

I did my Bachelor and Master in Psychologyat Saarland University. I focussed on IWO (A&O) and personality psychology. 

Currently, I am researching about two different topics. On the one hand, I investigate critical handover scenarios during drone flights and how to improve them for the human user.
On the other hand, I focus on board game research and its connection to personality psychology.

Open B.Sc. / M.Sc. Thesis Topics

I mainly supervise theses in psychology. However, I also supervise theses in other subjects if you plan to conduct an empirical study. If you are interested in doing a Bachelor's or Master's thesis (in German or English) in my areas of interest, feel free to contact me.
I am also open to topic suggestions related to these areas.


If you are studying psychology and are interested in an internship, feel free to contact me.
