Als Gesundheits- und Sozialpsychologe versuche ich die kognitiven, sozialen und biologischen Prozesse, die Selbstkontrolle zugrunde liegen, im Labor und im Alltag zu untersuchen und zusammenzubringen. Ein Hauptfokus liegt dabei auf den Faktoren Motivation, Intention, Ziele, Einstellungen und kognitive Kapazität und wie diese Faktoren genutzt werden können, um Gesundheitsverhalten positiv zu beeinflussen. Im Rahmen meiner Forschung bin ich zum einen an der Entwicklung neuer Modelle über Selbstkontrolle und ihren Limitationen interessiert. Zum anderen nutze ich eine große Breite an Methoden wie u.a. ambulantes Assessment, um alltagsnahe Verhaltensinterventionen zu entwickeln und zu erproben, die spezifisch und adaptiv an die jeweiligen Gegebenheiten eines Individuums angepasst werden können.
