I am working as a postdoctoral RA at the University of Bath, UK. Prior to this, I undertook my under- and postgraduate degrees in psychology (B.Sc. and M.Sc.) and political science and sociology (B.A.) at Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (Germany), and my PhD at Cardiff University. The title of my thesis is "Human values and value instantiations: Similarities and differences between countries and their implications". At University of Bath I am working with Greg Maio on various projects about human values, how people across countries instantiate (~ exemplify or understand) human values, and some methodological projects. In 2016 I was awarded with 'Junior Researcher of the Year Award' and in 2017 with the 'Haydn Ellis Prize' for an outstanding dissertation by the School of Psychology, Cardiff University.
