Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Postdoctoral research has included studying the relationships of physiological stress-reactivity, psychological background variables and affects as well as performance. The goal has been to maintain links to applied research. Methods have included laboratory research and mobile measurement and self-report devices. Side projects include research topics that are relevant in terms of evolutionary psychology.

Teaching has included, besides lecturing in courses, mentoring research apprenticeships.

The topic of the PhD thesis was stress and long QT-syndrome. The stress reactivity of LQTS patients is tested with psychometric tests (temperament, personality, work stress). Outside the thesis, the LQTS patients' stress reactivity was also tested in the stress laboratory.
