Kurzbiographie:

Im Anschluss an das Studium der Psychologie beschäftigte sich Morena Lebens als Doktorandin im Department of Psychology and Education der University of Glamorgan  mit den kognitiven und affektiven Dimensionen mathematischem Kompetenzerwerbs. Im Anschluss wirkte sie als wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin und Dozentin an der Ruhr Universität Bochum in psychologisch-pädagogischen Forschungsprojekten mit. Gegenwärtig ist sie als wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin am Lehrstuhl für klinische Psychologie und Psychotherapie der Universität Wuppertal tätig. Schwerpunkte ihrer Forschungsinteressen sind die Modellierung und Diagnose psychopathologischer Informationsverarbeitungsprozesse.

Morena Lebens acquired her PhD in Psychology at the University of Glamorgan (Department of Psychology and Education). She worked at the Ruhr University of Bochum as a post doc researcher and is currently employed at University of Wuppertal (Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy). Her research is focussed on the structures and processes of the cognitive architecture and the measurement of  psychopathological information processing strategies in the context of learning and instruction.
