Junior PI


Since April 2015 I have been a Junior Principal Investigator at the University of Oxford’s Department of Experimental Psychology and the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics. And I am now (from February 2017) also the head of the Social Behaviour and Ethics Lab

I am a social psychologist, although my research is interdisciplinary, in both content and methods. I teach social psychology in our BSc and MSc courses.

Since 2016, I am also a Visiting Research Fellow at the Social and Organisational Psychology unit at Leiden University (Netherlands; host: Carsten De Dreu).



From mid 2012 to mid 2015, I worked with Miles Hewstone as a Postdoctoral Researcher. I was part of the interdisciplinary ‘Enhancing Responsibility‘ project, based at the University of Oxford (UK) and Delft University of Technology (Netherlands).

In summer 2014, I visited the Social and Organizational Psychology group at the VU University Amsterdam (Netherlands; host: Paul Van Lange)



Before I came to Oxford for my PostDoc, I did a 3-year PhD in social and economic psychology at the University of Göttingen (Germany). I was supervised by Stefan Schulz-Hardt and Andreas Mojzisch and supported by the ‘Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes’.

BSc / MSc 


I obtained a BSc and an MSc (diploma) in psychology at the University of Munich (Germany), focusing on social psychology and economic psychology.
