Personal note:

I am a dedicated young researcher interested in the working mechanisms of meditation and yoga. My research interests include the diversity of meditation techniques, differential effects of meditation and yoga, the interaction of meditation and personality (especially the trait absorption), and the effects of yoga and meditation on patients with psychological disorders. I am an expert and lecturer in research methodology, specifically in longitudinal and single-case research designs.

I studied psychology in Dresden und am currently working at the Chemnitz University of Technology as a research assistant and doctorate student. I am a trained yoga instructor and regularly teach yoga classes.
