Currently

Since February 2016 I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Economic Psychology Lab, which is led by Jörg Rieskamp, at the University of Basel in Switzerland. My main interests are process models of human decision making — with an evolutionary twist to it. I am fortunate to be able to work with cognitive and evolutionary psychologists, anthropologists, and citizen science researchers.

Education

I received my doctorate from the Humboldt Universtiy, Berlin, Germany; supervised by Gerd Gigerenzer at the Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition (ABC) at the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Development (MPIB) in Berlin. I was member of the International Max Planck Research School on Adapting Behavior in a Fundamentally Uncertain World (IMRS Uncertainty).

Positions

Predoctoral fellow at the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Development (MPIB) in Berlin; visiting researcher at the Department for Physics and Astronomy and the Interacting Minds Centre (IMC) at Aarhus University, Denmark (AU); assistant at the Chair for Microeconomics at the University of Rostock; background: psychology and economics, Ludwig Maximilians Universität (LMU), Munich.
