Research
Anna Kornadt is interested in what influences development across the life span (with a focus on midlife and old age) and how developmental outcomes further drive developmental regulation. Her main research areas are the influence of views on aging on developmental processes as well as personality and self-development in older age. She is also interested in the development of social inequality, the psychological foundations of preparation for age-related changes, and the maintenance of health and well-being in later life. She has previously worked in several large, interdisciplinary projects designed to study development across the life span, such as the Ageing as Future project in Jena www.alternalszukunft.uni-jena.de and the TwinLife project in Bielefeld www.twin-life.de.
Currently, she is a member of the DFG-funded scientific network "Images of Aging - Via a dynamic life-span model to new perspectives for research and practice" www.health.uni-konstanz.de/images-of-aging.
