Psychology and health decision making
Risk perception and communication
I studied psychology at the University of Erfurt and am now a PhD student at the Centre for Empirical Economic and Behavioral Research (CEREB), where I am specifically concerned with individual and social aspects of antibiotic use. In order to investigate individual behavior in connection with the use of antibiotics and their externalities, I have developed a dynamic common pool resource dilemma game, the "Mutant Game". I was part of the APACI team interested in culturally sensitive health communication and cultural differences in vaccine communication. I helped to develop a crisis communication reference book for the World Health Organization’s Regional Office for Europe and was involved in a technical report on measles and rubella control for the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. As a member of the GENIA network of the University of Erfurt, I am interested in various perspectives and approaches in health research.
