Career development

From March 2017 to May 2021, Christian Kosel worked as a research assistant and Ph.D. student with Prof. Dr. Tina Seidel at the Chair of Educational Psychology at the Technische Universität München. In May 2021, he received his Ph.D. from the TUM School of Education with a thesis on the visual expertise of teachers (grade: summa cum laude). Since May 2021, he has continued his research as a postdoctoral researcher and is working on his habilitation. Before coming to the Technische Universität München, he studied sociology and statistics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich. His current research focuses on the analysis of complex eye movement patterns and other process-based data (e.g. emotions) collected under both laboratory and natural conditions. In addition, he is working on the methodological development of eye-tracking analysis procedures to increase their accuracy and potential applications in psychological research.
