Nicole Schwitter

I am a PhD student and Research Assistant in the Department of Sociology at the University of Warwick. I hold an MA in Sociology from the University of Leipzig and a BA in Social Sciences and Computer Science from the University of Bern.

I am working on the project "Social Status and Prosociality: A Cross-Cultural Study in Four Selected Countries", led by Prof. Ulf Liebe (University of Warwick) and Dr. Andreas Tutić (University of Leipzig), and funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the German Research Foundation. The study aims at testing hypotheses regarding the interplay of social status and different forms of prosocial behaviour by using large-scale surveys and embedding experimental tasks.
