Hi there, I'm Adani!



I’m a master’s student in Psychology at the University of Munich.

I also assist with various research on the development of scientific reasoning and related abilities in young children, informal learning in science museums, and international student assessment.

I’m primarily interested in how children learn and reason about the world, and how they go on to develop as individuals. Relatedly, I’m curious about computational models of such processes, and how immersive technologies (e.g., VR) can be used to enhance K–12 science education.

From time to time, I write short texts and dabble in small webdesign / data viz / misc. coding projects. I also love exchanging ideas with other people, so if you would like to talk about any given topic, please don’t hesitate to reach out!


May 16, 2022 I have been selected to join the German Academic Scholarship Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes) as a merit scholarship grantee and student member!
