In my research, I am engaged in exploring how people assess the personality traits of their fellow human beings and how this impacts social dynamics. I investigate both diagnostic questions – such as how to measure whether people tend to see the good or the bad in others – and questions related to personality psychology – such as the characteristics of a person with good interpersonal intuition.
In our current most comprehensive research project, my team and I have developed a free quiz app for assessing one’s own interpersonal intuition. For more information, please visit the Who Knows project.
I am dedicated to the Open Science movement, regularly sharing research data, materials, and analysis scripts for my studies, which I also preregister whenever possible.

Once I began my Ph.D., I regularly conducted seminars and workshops on implementing statistical procedures using SPSS and R at both the Bachelor’s and Master’s levels. Furthermore, I held lectures on Psychological Diagnostics at the Master’s level and led seminars on targeted diagnostic interviewing, personality and performance measurement, and personality and interpersonal perception at zero-acquaintance at the University of Münster. At HMU, my teaching focus also lies in the field of Psychological Diagnostics.
In the winter term (WS 2023/24) I teach the following courses:
