Intensive Longitudinal Data Lab

Intensive longitudinal data allow to examine changes in individuals’ behaviors and experiences on different time scales – from short term, moment-to-moment fluctuations to long term changes across the life span. These data are often collected in everyday life via smartphone-based ambulatory assessment studies.

In the Intensive Longitudinal Data Lab we collect and analyze these data, focusing on research in the areas of (developmental) psychological research and empirical educational research. The main conceptual area of interest of our lab targets socio-emotional adaptation processes over the life span. In this context, we investigate the role of fulfillment of basic psychological needs for these processes. In another line of research, our lab targets psychometric issue in intensive longitudinal data and develops statistical models for the analysis of intensive longitudinal data. For this purpose, we also use simulation studies in addition to collecting and analyzing empirical data.

The research conducted in this lab forms the basis for other research investigating the question how everyday behavior and experience influence long-term change processes. Our research is therefore also an essential building block for the development of individualized interventions.
