Academic Background

Sylvia came to Oxford in 2009 after undergraduate study at Kiel University, Germany and Vienna University, Austria.

Research Interests

Her thesis is entitled "Moral decision making: Social Psychology and Emotion," and she aims to investigate the role of prejudice, empathy, attribution, and more generally “emotions” in moral decision making, using behavioural experimental approaches, as well as physiological measures. The overarching aim is to show the involvement of emotions as important but not sufficient, taking a more cognitive approach.
