Invited Speakers

Severine Tousseart holds two Masters degrees from Sciences Po and Paris School of Economics as well as a PhD in Economics from New York University. She uses a combination of theory and experiments to study topics at the intersection of economics and psychology. One of her main research interests pertains to the study of self-control in different contexts such as weight loss, smoking cessation or work productivity.

Magda Osman is Reader in the Department of Biological and Experimental Psychology at Queen Mary, University of London, UK. Her research interests include causal reasoning, problem-solving, learning and vision, and she is currently Associate Editor for Experimental Psychology, and consults on several national and international research councils. Magda has authored two books, Controlling Uncertainty and Future-Minded.

Jana Jarecki is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Economic Psychology Lab, which is led by Jörg Rieskamp, at the University of Basel in Switzerland. Hermain interests are process models of human decision making — with an evolutionary twist to it. Trained in economics and psychology, she received her doctorate from the Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany; supervised by Gerd Gigerenzer at the Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition (ABC) at the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Development (MPIB) in Berlin. She was a member of the International Max Planck Research School on Adapting Behavior in a Fundamentally Uncertain World (IMRS Uncertainty).

Anne Scheel studied psychology in Heidelberg and Glasgow and is currently pursuing a PhD at TU Eindhoven. She has a background in developmental psychology, but her growing interest in open science and reproducibility eventually led her to quit her PhD on infant imitation at LMU Munich and turn to meta-science instead. In October 2017, she joined Daniël Lakens’ project “Increasing the reliability and efficiency of psychological science” and is particularly interested in how researchers can be encouraged to design more falsifiable and informative studies.
She co-hosts the meta-science blog The 100% CI and is part of the moderator team of the (German-language) science communication project Real Scientists DE.
