Mireille Krischler joined the Institute for Education and Society (InES) as a postdoctoral researcher in January 2021.

My main areas of research encompass attitudes and competences of teachers required to work with heterogeneous student populations as well as diagnostics and promotion of students with special educational needs with a focus on inclusion.

I work under the supervision of Carmen Zurbriggen who joined the University of Luxembourg as Associate Professor for Inclusive Education and Learning Difficulties in September 2020.  
I completed my PhD in Psychology at the University of Luxembourg in October 2018. From May 2015 to May 2018, I worked as a doctoral candidate in the FNR CORE project “Inclusive education: The effect of teacher characteristics and school support on inclusive practice”. From June 2018 to December 2020, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Research and Promotion of Gifted Children at the University of Trier. In the project “LUPE - Seeking and finding performance potentials: A project for the material-based promotion of diagnostic skills of primary school teachers”, we developed theory-based and subject-specific materials to help primary school teachers to actively search for and find performance potentials among pupils.
