Tatjana Aue

Background

Tatjana Aue is a post-doctoral fellow with the Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience at the University of Chicago. She completed her diploma in Psychology at the Philipps-Universität Marburg in Germany in 2001. Her diploma thesis, which was supervised by Professor Gerhard Stemmler, was concerned with the trans-situational consistency of physiological responses (“Individual response specificity"). In 2006, she obtained her Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of Geneva, Switzerland. Her dissertation project under the mentorship of Professor Klaus Scherer addressed the relationship between appraisal, action tendencies, and physiological responses. Currently, Tatjana works on affective bias and decision making.
