September 2018 DGPs Conference: "Assessing physical and psychological factors related to return to work in orthopedic rehabilitation patients"

Topic 1:
I am interested in the mental representation of wealth and I examine  
how social comparisons, stereotypes, and heuristics affect perceptions  
of wealth and wealthy people.

Topic 2:
In cooperation with Professor Sonia Lippke from Jacobs University  
Bremen, we investigate how the interplay of (social-)psychological and  
physiological factors affect the satisfaction and well-being of  
orthopedic rehabilitation patients.
