About me

I am an associate professor at the Department of Management of the Faculty of Business Administration, Prague University of Economics and Business, and a researcher at the Prague College of Psychosocial Studies. I am the head of the Applied Ethics and Morality Research Group at the Prague University of Economics and Business.

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

If you are interested in a Ph.D. or postdoctoral position under my supervision, feel free to contact me.

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