LIFE Fellow since 2023, University of Zurich
I am a doctoral student at the University of Zurich, supervised by Alexandra M. Freund (chair: “Developmental Psychology: Adulthood”). I am affiliated with the University Research Priority Program “Dynamics of Healthy Aging” at the University of Zurich. Before joining Prof. Freund’s lab, I studied Psychology at the Universities of Salzburg, Hong Kong, New South Wales, and Bonn. In my Bachelor’s thesis, I investigated emotional responses to criticism in intragroup and intergroup contexts. My Master’s thesis dealt with the perception of prosocial behavior. More specifically, I examined how helping and morally courageous acts and actors are evaluated by third parties. My dissertation project also focuses on prosocial behavior. I aim to study how prosocial behavior and the underlying motivations change across adulthood. In addition, I am interested in other aspects of prosocial and moral behavior, emotions, judgment and decision making, group processes, and open science.
