Dr. Andre Asfalg





A large part of my academic career took place at the University of Mannheim, Germany. After receiving my diploma in Psychology (equivalent of a master’s degree) in 2008, I joined the Center of Doctoral Studies in Social and Behavioral Sciences. At the same time, I taught courses in cognitive psychology and research methods. I received my Ph.D. in cognitive psychology in 2011 and joined the Bernstein cognition lab as a postdoctoral fellow in summer 2012.

My research interests include judgment biases that occur after working on problem-solving tasks and affect subsequent judgments of familiarity, preference, truth, or frequency. I am also interested in the assessment of witness accuracy when the facts about the critical event are yet unknown.
