I am a first year PhD student of Prof. Dr. Rainer Greifeneder at the Center for Social Psychology at the University of Basel, Switzerland. In my research, I am currently interested in the phenomenon of processing fluency (the feeling of ease or difficulty of processing information) and its influence on a variety of judgments, such as truth judgments, frequency judgments, and judgments concerning one's skills and interests. Another focus of my work is psychological distance in the framework of construal level theory.
