      As you might know from this page, I am writing my master thesis at the moment. I started some weeks ago already and am really involved in the project. The topic is the impact of Work-Family-Conflict on the Work ability of woman, as I believe that Work-Family-Conflict is a huge problem for many families since a long time but also now!
      Other students from the program are for example investigating the relationship between Work-Family-Conflict and working hours or the impact of stress on smoking behavior. Besides this, there are so many other topics important to investigate in the next years! 😊🤗
