What is my role within CATALPA?

As a post-doctoral researcher with a background in educational science I am working in the project LA-DIVA particularly on the pedagogical foundation of the features to be developed and how these are related to learning behavior and performance.


The interdisciplinary project and research cluster offer interesting tasks, diverse exchange as well as good conditions to advance the scientific career. My goal is to develop educational technologies that integrate learning, computer and data sciences to provide learners and instructors with the support they need.

    • Post-doctoral researcher in the project LA-DIVA, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (since April 2020)
    • Doctoral degree (Dr. rer. Pol.) on the topic “Cognitive, Metacognitive, and Motivational Perspectives on Learning Analytics. Synthesizing Self-regulated Learning, Assessment, and Feedback with Learning Analytics”, University of Mannheim (2020)
    • Research assistant at the chair of Learning, Design and Technology (Prof. Dr. Dirk Ifenthaler), University of Mannheim (2015-2020)
    • Diploma in educational science (Diplom-Pädagogin) with focus on adult education, psychology and work psychology, University of Koblenz-Landau (2014)
  • My research interests are at the intersection of educational science and educational technologies with focus on learning analytics, self-regulated learning, feedback, assessment, collaborative learning, prompts and informal learning
