Dr. Georg Halbeisen

„You are a theorist, not a practitioner. “

I am pretty sure that someone wasn‘t trying to compliment me when I was interviewed for an apprenticeship at a large financial institution back in 2005. Unbeknownst to them, however, their assessment was a primer of my love of science and psychological research.

After finishing high school in 2006, I studied psychology at the University of Trier and the New York University. In 2010, I became a doctoral student at the department of social psychology (PI: Eva Walther), where I continue to work as a post doc since August, 2014. My research concerns the automaticity of learning, attitude formation, embodied cognition, and psychological distance. If you are interested in my research, seek supervision of a B.Sc. or M.Sc. thesis, or are simply curious, you can see the links below*, take a look at my CV, follow me on the inMind blog, tweet @georg.halbeisen, or contact me directly by email.
