I am an assistant professor, holding a PhD in psychology, and psychotherapy license for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) treating children, adolescents and adults.
I'm aiming to empower children, adolescents and parents to better cope with stress and mental illness using the advantages of digital technology.

In my research I adhere to the following open science standards if ever practically possible:
studies are either pre-registered or studies / analyses are explicitly marked as exploratory, data and materials (and if possible also reproducible analysis scripts) are made publicly available at the time of publication, all manipulations and assessed variables are reported; I aim to report failed studies in a project, studies are planned to have sample sizes that allow achieving sufficient statistical power; power is a-priori determined where ever possible on the basis of power analyses, I support replication (see PRODO trial, e.g.) and also aim to make non-successful replications (of own and others’ findings) available.
Exceptions are possible, for example, if there are restrictions due to legal or contractual obligations (e.g., concerning data sharing or material sharing) or if quick set-ups are required to analyze current societal developments.
