After acquiring a PhD in Psychology at the University of Salzburg, Austria, I spent a year as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of California, Los Angeles with Bernard Weiner. Subsequently, I was a co-worker of Margret Baltes at the Free University Berlin; a Lecturer in Psychology in Wolfgang Schönpflug's research group, also at the Free University Berlin; a Research Stipendiary of the Thyssen Foundation; and a Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Bielefeld, where I worked in Wulf-Uwe Meyer's research team and acquired my "Habilitation" degree in Psychology in 1994. After several years as a stand-in professor for Social Psychology in Bielefeld, I became Professor for General Psychology in the areas of emotion and motivation at the University of Greifswald in 2002.
