Alexander Ehlert is a research assistant at the Chair of Prof. Rauhut since 2018. He studied Economics, Mathematics, and Statistics at the University of Constance, KEDGE Business School Marseille, and the Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel. His main research interests focus on situations in which personal and collective interests are at odds and ways to resolve them, the development and evolution of cooperation and social norms using behavioral experiments, social network analysis, and other quantitative research methods. Theses should have a strong empirical focus and show how scientific findings can be used to improve people's lives.
