Psychological Methods are concerened with the development and adaption of statistical procedures to measure psychological constructs, statistical and mathematical modeling of psychological processes, the design of evaluation studies, and the analysis and interpretation of empirical-psychological data.
The connection of methodological and substantive research questions, and cooperation with other national and international research groups are central for our department. Our key research interests are twofold: the development and adaption of new quantitative methods and theoretical concepts for the analysis of a) longitudinal data and b) (causal) treatment effects.
