Research Interests

Risky choice / decisions under risk

Social dilemma decision making (especially intergenerational decisions)

Process tracing (especially mouse-tracking)


Why did you choose the University of Mannheim and in particular the GESS?

As my research focuses on the psychological aspects of Judgment and Decision Making, the University of Mannheim was ideal, having several psychological scientists and a research group dedicated to this particular research area. Besides, the GESS offered me the possibility for cross-discipline collaborations which I deem very important to advance our knowledge not only but particularly in this research area.


What is the best part of being a doctoral student here?

There are a lot of possibilities to present and get feedback on your work (e.g. CDSS colloquium, department colloquium, specific GESS events) and many people are willing to discuss your ideas.


How would you describe your fellow doctoral students?

Open for discussions, always willing to share their knowledge.


What was most challenging about your experience within the program?

The first semester is especially challenging since the search for a dissertation topic, several core courses, and (potentially) a new department position all come together.


Any advice for prospective students?

The GESS administration and professors are always open for feedback if you have any ideas for improvements (e.g., with regard to the course program or administrative matters).
