Sophie Stephan

  • PhD Student

In my bachelor’s degree, I studied Psychology at Leuphana University Lüneburg (Germany), which offers training in inter- and transdisciplinary approaches in addition to the chosen major. After working for an HR consultancy in Berlin, I started the master’s program “Health and Social Psychology” at Maastricht University (The Netherlands). I had the opportunity to focus on topics such as behavioral change programs, intergroup relations, social change as well as social inequality and its reciprocal relationship to (mental) health. 

Research Interests

I am interested in research questions in the field of biomedical ethics related to social psychological issues. Currently, I am investigating the impact of non-pharmaceutical protective measures against COVID-19 in nursing homes.
