I delve into how individual freedoms and constraints shape actions and impact political motivations, particularly in fueling populist movements. My focus extends to understanding these influences within communication channels, notably in the realm of social media. Alongside delving into resistance dynamics, I’m deeply engaged in emotion psychology projects, channeling this expertise into innovative product development and projects that serve the general public; namely a new project to research belonging in wicked times.

As an interdisciplinary researcher at LMU, I’m dedicated to unraveling these complexities, exploring human interactions at the crossroads of social psychology and communication sciences. Through research, teaching, and collaborations, I strive to deepen our grasp of societal intricacies.
