My research revolves around five major themes:        Picture

  • Students’ learning motivation and psychosocial development
  • Analyzing and evaluating teaching practice using advanced technology (e.g., mobile eye-tracking)
  • Multivariate Statistics and Longitudinal Design
  • The U.S. and German school systems in international comparison
  • Long-term impact of schooling on the life course

Life-span development and socio-cognitive theory are the paradigms I find most useful in my work. Find links to my recent publications through the following link
