Research interests

I am a teacher and researcher at the Institute for Sportstudies at the department of Physical Education. My research interests are in the fields of motivation (self-determination theory) and self-regulation in primary schools and lower-vocational education. Furthermore I like to focus on the interaction between teachers and students.
