Research summary

My PhD is mainly about cross-cultural value instantiations. Research has shown that rather abstract human values differ only little between cultures. We are assuming that value instantiations can potentially explain cross-cultural differences better than abstract human values. So far only a few studies have shown the important role of value instantiations – exemplifiers of an abstract category – in bridging the gap between abstract values and specific actions. In a first step we are aiming to explore typical instantiations of a broad set of values in different countries, e.g. Brazil, India and the United Kingdom.

Moreover I am interested in Moralpsychology and daydreaming
