Supervisor:

Daniel Heck was born in Michelstadt, Germany, and has been studying psychology since 2009 in Mannheim, including a semester abroad in Groningen in the Netherlands. As a research assistant, he gained teaching experience in tutorials for quantitative methods and worked at the Chair for Cognitive Psychology and Individual Differences. He is interested in mathematical models of cognition and related topics such as the question how to select the best out of a set of different models.


Why I chose the University of Mannheim and in particular the GESS

Because of its interdisciplinary background and the broad scope of courses and workshops.


The best part of being a doctoral student here

To have the company of other doctoral students and help each other.


A description of my fellow doctoral students

Very nice, intelligent, and open-minded people.


My most challenging experience within the program

Selecting the right courses that fit my interests best.


My advice for prospective students

Learning about other related fields and getting a new perspective on things can only help in developing new ideas.
