René Kopietz

I am a social cognition researcher working at the Social Psychology Lab of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster. Broadly speaking, I am interested in motivated cognition, social influence, and social judgment and decision making. More specifically, I am interested in the interplay of motivation and cognition. For example, I am investigating how different communication goals affect our memory, how we use cognitive feelings in our (social) decision making, or how we remember mixed self-relevant feedback. Please visit my personal website for more details about me and my work.
