Research interests

I am interested in the conceptualization of and relationship between personality and well-being. As part of the “Coping with Corona” (CoCo) project, I am conducting a global experience sampling study on individual differences in well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic in more than 20 countries. Therein, I focus on social interaction processes that might explain why people react differently to the challenges posed by the pandemic.
Apart from the CoCo project, I am interested in personality dynamics (e.g., cybernetic personality theory), the conceptualization and measurement of well-being (e.g., value fulfillment), the flow experience, and narcissism.
