Antje's research is broadly focused on optimizing children's development. In her research, she emphasizes the interactional and contextual nature of learning and development. Her current work focuses on helping schools develop their readiness to implement effective teaching strategies and to improve young children's learning-related skills (including self-regulation and social competence). She is also interested in physiological and biological foundations of self-regulation and how classroom processes and teacher-child-relationships relate to these processes. Antje has taught at the Universities of Munich, Freiburg and Lüneburg. She also worked as school psychologist for several years in Switzerland.
