A massive congratulations to Julia Baum who was a runner up for this year’s Adlershof Dissertation Prize. On February 14, 2023, the Adlershof Dissertation Prize was awarded for the 21st time. Julia had been shortlisted for the prize and presented her work to the judges at an event hosted in Erwin Schrödinger-Zentrum in Adlershof. Her doctoral thesis “Emotional content in social misinformation affects mind, brain, and judgments” is extremely timely and has powerful implications for how we deal with misinformation and questionable sources. Fantastic work, Julia! 

Congratulations from our lab also go out to Dr. Jannes Münchmeyer, whose doctoral thesis on early warnings for earthquakes won this year, as well as Dr. Dominique Lungwitz, another runner up.
