In my PhD project, I study physical activity, eating behaviour, stress and affect in everyday life. I'm particularly interested in using different methodological and analytical approaches to unravel the relationships between health behaviour and stress / affect. 

The research project is supervised by Prof. Dr. Jens Blechert.

My research was funded and supported by the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program (ERCStG-2014 639445 NewEat).
