About me

I am a researcher at the Faculty of Business Administration of the University of Economics in Prague and at the Prague College of Psychosocial Studies.

I am mainly interested in judgment and decision making. In particular, my research examines anchoring, processing fluency, moral judgment, and moral behavior. I am also interested in open science, psychological methodology, statistics, programming, and intersections between psychology and computer science.

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