My work on decision-making processes has been published in  top international scientific journals, as well as been featured in popular media and books.

I deliver high-quality engagements on decision-making, especially on improving decision-making quality, avoiding common decision-making pitfalls, and increasing efficiency.  

With a strong background in science and industry, I offer bespoke consultation on your specific research or decision-making problems. I support R&D teams in optimizing their design, analyses, and recommendation processes. 


I run the Social and Economic Cognition Lab at the Technical University Dresden, where I study the effects of ambivalence and difficulty on decision-making and organizational processes. I am interested in how people make difficult decisions and how people can improve quality and efficiency.  Check out this podcast or this article for an introduction to indecision and its benefits. If you are a researcher interested in ambivalence, you might want to join the Ambivalence Research Collective, an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars. My scientific work is available here, and my full academic CV is here. More information can also be found on my Google Scholar and Open Science Framework pages.

I also work with organizations to help them improve their decision-making processes by offering keynote presentations, workshops, and consultancy. Find out more here or contact me at Or you can visit my LinkedIn page.

Make better decisions

My goal is to help executives and organizations make better decisions by providing them with insightful and actionable advice based on the latest scientific research.

I offer keynote presentations on the science of effective decision-making,  covering a wide range of topics, including cognitive biases, heuristics, decision-making under uncertainty, and more. I provide my audience with recommendations that are insightful and actionable, providing practical strategies that can be implemented to enhance decision-making effectiveness.

I also offer organizations consultancy tailored to their specific needs. I provide guidance in decision-making processes, research questions, and data analysis and interpretation, resulting in practical recommendations based on data.
