Research Interests


In my research I try to unravel the mental processes underlying human behaviour. I focus on the investigation of implicit belief-based processes that determine automatic behavior such as automatic evaluation, habits, pathological and health behaviour.

Given the importance of behaviour and mental processes in all life domains, I strive for the large-scale application of scientific behavioural research to promote adaptive behaviour for societal benefit.

Real-life behaviour change domains of particular interest: addiction, climate change, prejudice, happiness, depression, and mental health


Keywords: Behaviour change, metatheory, implicit cognition, automatic beliefs and inferences
