Emotion and Emotion Regulation in Daily Life
In this line of research I am interested in how people manage their emotions in their everyday life. I am curious how different kinds of daily situations such as one's location or activities , affect why, how and how successfully people regulate their emotions.
To investigate these questions I use
Experience Sampling Methodology (ESM)/ Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA)
Passive Sensing (e.g., Mobile Sensing through participants' phones)
Advanced Statistical Methods such as Multilevel Modeling, Bayesian Mixed Effects Location Scale Modeling, or Dynamic Structural Equation Modeling
