Carina Giesen

Carina Giesen studied psychology at the University of Jena, Germany and at the University of Glasgow, UK. She received her psychology diploma (German equivalent to M.Sc. degree) in 2009. Since then, she is a PhD student at the Department of General Psychology II at the University of Jena, and works together with Klaus Rothermund. Her PhD thesis focuses on principles of stimulus-response binding and retrieval (i.e., processes of behavior automatization). Her main research focus is therefore in cognitive psychology, but she is also interested in a lot of topics that relate to social, social-cognitive, and other experimental psychological issues.
