Very few general population studies have analyzed the associations of age and gender with several aspects of gambling in Germany. Internationally, conflicting results have been found. Additionally, a decrease in age of onset of gambling was found in the USA but could not yet be demonstrated for Germany. We close these gaps, using data from the 2010...

Since 2015, increased numbers of newly immigrated schoolchildren in Europe have resulted in divergent, often ad hoc measures to provide for their education.

During the last decade I tried to apply a lot of diverse tools of quantitative data analysis, statistical computing and modeling to learn more about deviant, excessive, addictive or disordered behavior. Secondary data analyses were a pivotal part of this approach. This included server sided logs of online behavior, administrative or publicly available sources as well as experimental data or surveys from convenience or representative samples.
Project
The prevention of disordered gambling is one of the core underlying themes of our empirical and theoretical work during the last years and across diverse research projects.
