Roland Pfister

Roland Pfister investigates cognition in action, from basic mechanisms of human action control to high-level processes such as rule-breaking and subjective agency. Simple and elegant behavioral experiments are his method of choice, occasionally supplemented by physiological measures. Further recurring themes touch upon research methods and statistics, as well as (pre-)history of psychology. Since receiving his PhD in 2013 from the University of Würzburg, Germany, his work has received several awards, among others from the Psychonomic Society and the German Psychological Society. He has published more than 100 journal articles and a German textbook on inferential statistics. He serves as Associate Editor for the journals Psychological Research and The Quantitative Methods for Psychology. Roland relies on his children when in need of a smartphone.
