I am a postdoctoral research scientist in my own research project “Agents and causes: Reconciling competing theories of causal reasoning” (DFG Ma 6545/1) at the Psychology Department of the University of Göttingen, Germany. The research project is part of the interdisciplinary priority program “New frameworks of rationality” (SPP 1516) of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).

I studied psychology, economics, and business information systems. I obtained my PhD in psychology (minors: computational science and statistics) in 2009 within the interdisciplinary graduate program “Applied statistics and empirical methods” at the Center of Statistics (University of Göttingen).
