Professor Sayantan Ghosal and Professor Yiannis Vailakis
Moritz Mosenhauer started his Ph.D. in October 2015 at the University of Glasgow under the supervision of Prof. Sayantan Ghosal and Prof. Yiannis Vailakis. He is interested in developing models that describe the influence of cognitive constraints on individual decision-making and testing their implications empirically.
In September 2015, he graduated from the Master in Economics program at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich. His master thesis “(Non-)Salience under cognitive constraints: a theoretical investigation of the boiling frog” was supervised by Prof. Florian Englmaier. Before that, he obtained his bachelor degree in Economics and Politics of East Asia from the Ruhr-University in Bochum.
