  • Mission

    Our research is based on a social-ecological paradigm and focuses on physical activity in everyday life. We are interested in the conditions that facilitate or hinder individuals to become active and the extent to which physical activity affects mental health.

  • Ambulatory Assessment

    We use innovative ambulatory assessment approaches to address the dynamic interplay between physical activity and mental health and to investigate the impact of situational factors. Furthermore, these approaches help us to increase ecological validity of activity and mental health assessments.
