Heisenberg Programme

In March 2021, I have been awarded with a fellowship in the Heisenberg Programme of the German Research Foundation (DFG). The programme fully funds an academic senior position for up to five years.

Research project

The German Research Foundation (DFG) has granted funding for a three-year research project on “Social networks and wellbeing: A mixed-methods study in an older community”. This project seeks to identify which kinds of social networks are associated with positive health outcomes in older adults. Methods comprise of the collection and analysis of qualitative and quantitative panel data on the social networks of older adults within several community centers.

Conference funding

Funding by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation was granted for a conference on social network research at the GESIS Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in 2019.
