About me

My research is at the interface of social, organizational, health and clinical psychology. First, I am concerned with health at the workplace and, in particular, the relationship between leadership and health. In my dissertation, I examined health-oriented leadership, the health of leaders themselves, and the organizational health climate, among other topics. Besides that, I am also interested in how people think about stress (so-called stress mindset) and how they deal with it (e.g., self-care). In addition to my scientific work, I work as a psychological psychotherapist.
