About me

I am in the final year of my Ph.D. studies in social psychology at the University of Würzburg.

I am mainly interested in judgment and decision making. In particular, I do research on processing fluency, anchoring, moral judgment, and choice blindness. I am also interested in psychological methodology, statistics, and programming. I try to participate in various replication initiatives and other crowdsourced projects.

I used to do research on spatial navigation, memory, and temporal cognition in rats. I am also an author of a program for analysing data from behavioral neuroscience tasks (Carousel maze, Open field, Morris water maze) called Carousel Maze Manager.

Data, analysis scripts, and materials for my papers can be found on the Open Science Framework.
