Psychology, in particular Cognitive-, Social- and Economic Psychology

Oliver Genschow, who joined Leuphana for the winter semester 2022/2023, plans to establish a psychological observation lab at the university to support his research.

In his research, he asks: "How do I perceive a person, how do I react to them - how do I anticipate this person, how do I imitate them?"


His teaching and research focuses on the connection between bodily states and socially relevant characteristics. Specifically, Oliver investigates the question of how the observation and execution of movement patterns influence our own cognitions, judgments, and actions.
