Martin Rosenfelder studied psychology at Ulm University from 2010 on and graduated in 2016. Between 2011 and 2016 he worked as a student assistant in the department for Learning and Instruction (Prof. Dr. Tina Seufert) at Ulm University. Supported by a four-month ERASMUS scholarship, Mr. Rosenfelder did research on „transgender in children and young adults“ at Università di Torino (Prof. Dr. Piera Brustia / Dr. Angelamaria Caldarera) in Italy. In 2016 Mr. Rosenfelder graduated with a thesis on the effect of solving jigsaw puzzles enhancing visuospatial cognition (PACE project; Prof. Dr. Iris-Tatjana Kolassa / Dr. Patrick Fissler). Since November 2016 he has been working at the department “Clinical and Biological Psychology” (Prof. Dr. Iris-Tatjana Kolassa) at Ulm University and Therapiezentrum Burgau (Prof. Dr. Andreas Bender) as a research associate and PhD student.
