Personal profile


I work as a researcher and university lecturer at the department of special education, where I mainly teach courses in quantitative research methods and serve as a supervisor for students writing their master's theses. My research interests include students' academic well-being, with a particular focus on individual developmental trajectories of academic well-being (i.e., school engagement and burnout) during educational transitions, and the developmental dynamics between well-being, performance, motivational beliefs, and future aspirations.
