Jona Kunz, M. Sc. Sportwiss.

PhD Student

I earned my bachelor’s degree in sports-science (Humboldt University of Berlin) and achieved my master’s degree in sports-, movement and health-science at the University of Potsdam. Since December 2020 I am working as a research assistant on a project which deals with the training and further education of sports teachers. In my PHD project I am concerned with affective reactions of adolescents during sport (PE lessons) and how these are related to different physiological parameters. My overall research interest is to find out what makes people choose a rather inactive over an active lifestyle. Understanding these mechanisms may help to promote physical activity more effectively.
