I studied psychology at Konstanz University and Tel Aviv University from 2004 until 2009 and completed my Diplom thesis “Action Control in Group Decisions: Can Implementation Intentions Uncover Hidden Profiles?” under the supervision of Prof. Peter Gollwitzer, Prof. Anja Achtziger and Dr. Frank Wieber. I completed my doctorate on "Goal striving in groups with implementation intentions: Collective planning improves performance" at Konstanz University under the supervision of Prof. Peter Gollwitzer in April 2013 with honors (summa cum laude).

I currently hold a Post-Doctoral position at Konstanz University. I continue my work with Prof. Peter Gollwitzer and Dr. Frank Wieber on collective self-regulation through goals and plans in group decision-making. Moreover, bulding on past work on the regulation of self-esteem protective behavior (Thürmer, McCrea, & Gollwitzer, 2013), I collaborate with Prof. Sean McCrea (University of Wyoming, Laramie, USA) in a project on threat and decision making and with Dr. Joana Kunz (Univeristy of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand) in a project on effective self-regulation at the workplace.
