My name is Alex and I am a student of Cognitive and Decision Sciences at UCL. I am currently working on my MSc project in the affective brain lab under the supervision of Stephanie Lazzaro and Tali Sharot. Before that, I finished my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics at the University of Munich. I wrote my Bachelor's thesis on Probabilistic Conditionals, supervised by Hannes Leitgeb.

Most of my general interests lie in the areas of philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, mathematics, literature, theatre, music and outdoor activities -- and in their intersections. I write sometimes, too, but mostly in German.
