Doctoral Student


About Me

I am a PhD student at the chair of Technology and Innovation Management at the ETH Zurich and am working with Prof. Todd Hare at the Economics Department of the UZH focusing on social decision-making and Neuroeconomics. With a background in neurosciences and economics, I am interested in the micro level processes of managerial decision-making.

Research Interests

I am interested in decision-making processes and strategic choices which are innovative and are contributing to organizational flexibility and effectiveness. In particular I am curious to find out about the role of individual-level conflict in decision-making process and how individuals manage socio-economic tensions. With this research I aim to uncover cognitive processes underlying social decision-making and advance our knowledge about self-control, individual- and organisational learning and learning processes.

Mainly, I am setting up behavioral experiments and am doing quantitative analysis. I work with R, Matlab and Psychtoolbox. However, I am curious to learn new methods.

Activities and Roles

I am the thesis coordinator for the TIM chair and the teaching Assistant for the Innovation Leadership Course. In addition I am teaching Module 3 of the Industrial Engineering and Management Methodology for Theses in Companies course.

In 2016 I have received the SRF Dissertation Research Grant of the Strategic Management Society.
