Current Research Interests

  • Time perception
  • Recovery and exhaustion processes
  • Multiple goal pursuit

Brief Research Statement

I am part of the “Recharge” project in the UFSP “Dynamics of Healthy Aging”, which focuses on the interplay of recovery and exhaustion processes in different areas of life and throughout adulthood. In my dissertation project I mainly investigate if and to what extent subjective time perception during activities that promote recovery or exhaustion influences subsequent feelings of being recovered or exhausted, respectively, and how these processes change throughout the life course. To answer these questions I adopt a multi-method approach that includes cross-sectional and longitudinal designs of correlative and experimental nature.
