Oxford Martin Research Fellow
I am an experimental social psychologist. Before I became a Research Fellow / Principal Investigator at Oxford in mid-2015, I completed a 3-year-PostDoc (Oxford & Delft), a 3-year-PhD (Göttingen), and a BSc/MSc (Munich) in psychology.
With collaborators from psychology, philosophy, and neuroscience, I investigate cooperation and helping, as well as cognitive enhancement. I mainly use behavioural experiments, but also normative analyses and neuroscientific tools.
