After completing an undergraduate degree in Educational Science and Social Pedagogy at the Free University of Berlin, Germany in 2006, I undertook doctoral studies in Developmental Psychology at the University of Sussex, UK. My research was supervised by Dr. Alison Pike and examined pathways to adolescents’ aquisition of values within- and between families. I have successfully defended my doctoral thesis in August 2009 and currently work as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Barbara Maughan on adolescent conduct problems.
