I am a doctoral student at the Center for Adaptive Rationality at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg in 2016, I joined the Psychology Master’s program at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. I am interested in how people make decisions under uncertainty considering the environmental and social context and collaborated as an intern and later as a research assistant with members of the Center for Adaptive Rationality on different interdisciplinary research projects. In my master’s thesis, I used a multi-method approach combining qualitative and computational modeling data to analyze decision strategies of dyads in multiple-cue inference. For my dissertation project I am working with Christin Schulze and investigating the ecological rationality of repeated choice under uncertainty from an evolutionary and developmental perspective.

Dissertation project:
