I studied Music, Biology, and Mathematics (First State Examination with distinction, teaching degree for secondary schools, October 2012) as well as “Scientific Methods of Empirical Education and Social Research” (University Certificate, July 2013) at the University of Education Freiburg (Germany). From 2015 to 2016, I received a scholarship of the Landesgraduiertenförderungsgesetz (LGFG-grant) Baden-Württemberg. I did my doctoral dissertation in Music on different factors of students’ musical development at the University of Education Freiburg and obtained my Dr. phil. (PhD) in April 2018. From 2016 to 2019, I worked as a Research Assistant in the Institute for Music at the University of Education Freiburg. From 2018 to 2020, I worked as a Postdoc/Research Assistant in the Department of Music Education at the University of Music Lübeck (Germany). Since April 2019, I have been a Postdoc/Research Assistant at the Department of Psychology, Psychology in the Learning Sciences, University of Munich (Germany).

Research Interests

My key focus of research is on different musical developmental factors (e.g., music self-concept, musical sophistication, and motivation) and emotions. I consider musical developmental factors and emotions to be relevant because they impact the quality of (music) teaching and learning and, consequently, play a central role in the development of (musical) abilities and achievements.
