  • Dr Theresa Dicke

    As a psychologist, my research interests lie in substantive as well as (in) methodological aspects. Substantively, my research mainly focuses on resources (e.g. engagement, motivation, classroom management) to tackle occupational strain (e.g. burnout, fatigue, depression). Further, I investigate the role of self-beliefs within the stress development process. I have also started to examine the effects of self-regulated learning on studentsa?? academic achievement. In the future I strive to expand my research in the realm of motivational variables.
    Methodologically, I am interested in and apply structural equation modeling (longitudinal models, moderation and mediation, ESEM) and I am always eager to learn innovative and complex new approaches. Recently, I have also started to acquire skills in multilevel modeling.
