Since March 2020, I am a doctoral student at the SoKo lab and research assistant in the EU- project „DIGYMATEX“ ( I received my Bachelor’s degrees in Education Science and Psychology and my Master’s degree in Psychology at the University of Vienna and completed an ERASMUS study-abroad semester in Parma, Italy. From 2016-2020, I have been working in the field of Human Resources as HR project manager, setting up and managing the group-wide employee survey of an international corporation. In my dissertation project, I investigate young people’s use of digital media with the aim to develop a measure for children’s digital maturity. Specifically, I am interested in the processes and mannerisms of a self-determined and beneficial use of digital media by young people.  

Moreover, I am completing the postgraduate general introductory course in psychotherapy at the University of Vienna (Psychotherapeutisches Propäedeutikum).
