Christine Anderl received her M.Sc. in Neuro-Cognitive Psychology from Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and her doctorate degree in Psychology (Dr. rer. nat.) from Goethe University Frankfurt. She joined the Social Health Lab as a postdoctoral fellow in April 2017 to investigate the short and long term effects of sex hormones in shaping social-affective functioning. Furthermore, Christine is interested in developing and employing smartphone sensing methods to study the relationship between people’s online behaviours (e.g., social media use) and health-relevant outcomes (e.g., well-being, sleep quality) in the context of their natural environments. Christine’s research is supported by a Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation.
Research interests include the short and long term effects of sex hormones in shaping social-affective functioning; developing and employing smartphone sensing methods to study the relationship between people’s online behaviours (e.g., social media use) and health-relevant outcomes (e.g., well-being, sleep quality) in the context of their natural environments; and biological and psychological foundations of inter-individual differences in social decision-making/cooperation.
