Daniel joined the Department of Agricultural and Food Market Research at University of Bonn’s Institute for Food and Resource Economics as an Assistant Professor (Akademischer Rat) in 2016; before this he enjoyed interdisciplinary research training, friendships, and mentoring at multiple international research institutions. Daniel earned his PhD in Applied Economics from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and wrote his dissertation on the neuroeconomics of personality and decision making. After his PhD, Daniel was a postdoctoral researcher with the Department of Psychology at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, as part of the McClure Decision Neuroscience Laboratory (now at ASU).

Daniel’s MSc. was completed here, at University of Bonn’s Agricultural Science Department in collaboration with the Center for Development Research (ZEF).

He has been a senior research assistant at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) in Washington, DC, and a visiting researcher with the Max Planck Institute for research on collective goods (Intuitive Experts Group) in Bonn.

Daniel’s research has been presented at the Game Theory Society, the Society for Cognitive Neuroscience, the Society of Neuroeconomics, the Society for Judgment and Decision Making, the Society for Institutional Economics, and the Society for Personality and Individual Differences.

At the Chair of Agricultural and Food Markets, Daniel is developing research around multiple phenomena at the nexus of sustainability and consumer choice, in particular sustainable behavior change.
