My interests of research are in metacognition and learning and learning with interactive animations. Further, I am interested in research methods concerning learning and instruction. Before I came to Wuerzburg I worked in different research projects, mainly about pedagogical assessment. In 2009 I obtained my PhD about confidence judgments in self-regulated learning with hypermedia at the University of Koblenz-Landau. I work as a lecturer at the professorship for Instructional Media since 2011 teaching classes in learning with new media and research methods.
