We welcome Research Visit Fellow Hendrik Rommeswinkel to the Zukunftskolleg

Hendrik Rommeswinkel successfully applied to the Research Visit Programme of the Zukunftskolleg and will stay in Konstanz until 15 January 2024.

Hendrik is a decision theorist and behavioral economist at Waseda University for Advanced Study, one of the partner institutes of the Zukunftskolleg.

His research project: “Decision Times in the Luce Model” addresses the relation between individual choice behavior and the time it takes to make decisions. Specifically, in his research paper “Procedural Mixture Sets”, he has developed a theoretical prediction according to which decision times are monotonically increasing in the generalized entropy of the decision probabilities if the decision probabilities follow a specific pattern, the so-called Luce model. This work has been awarded the Jaffray lecture 2023 at the conference "Risk, Uncertainty & Decision", one of the leading conferences in decision theory.

In Konstanz, he collaborates with Urs Fischbacher.

We wish Hendrik a great time at the Zukunftskolleg!
