Heike Krüger
Methods of Empirical Social Research


Since November 2022 I am a research assistant at the Institute of Sociology at the chair of methods of empirical social research, held by Prof. Thomas Grund. My methodological focus is on the application of network analytic methods and intensive longitudinal models for the analysis of panel data. I am particularly interested in the quantitative analysis of co-dependencies between social relationships and mental health among adolescents and young adults. I gained experience in data collection in the context of a within-school panel survey (Socialbond), Thereby I also participated in the collection of network data and conducted three smartphone-based expierence sampling studies with adolescents and recent immigrants in Germany. In teaching, I focus on the transfer of methodological knowledge and the correct transfer of theoretical assumptions into the process of data analysis.
