“Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.”
Dr. Alicia von Schenk
Alicia was a postdoctoral researcher on Human-Machine Interaction and AI Governance at the Center for Humans and Machines of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin. Previously, she obtained a Ph.D. (Dr. rer. pol.) in Economics at Goethe University Frankfurt with a summa cum laude. Her thesis on ‘Organizational Behavior and Economic and Ethical Implications of Artificial Intelligence’ addresses inefficiencies in human decision-making and strives to enrich a microeconomic perspective on the potential of AI and new technologies to contribute to productive, satisfactory work environments. She acquired a Master’s degree in Mathematics by the age of 20 and additionally holds a Master’s degree in Quantitative Economics. She is passionate about developing innovative research and ideas and firmly believes in the potential of co-creation, be it in academia or in companies.
Dr. Victor Klockmann
Victor has finished his Ph.D. (Dr. rer. pol.) in Economics at Goethe University Frankfurt with a summa cum laude and was employed as a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Humans and Machines of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin. Before achieving a Master’s degree in Quantitative Economics, he completed Bachelor and Master studies in Mathematics at the Goethe University Frankfurt. His doctoral thesis, titled ‘Essays on Human Biases and the Economics of New Technologies’ takes a look at self-serving distortions in human thinking and how technological advances, such as artificial intelligence, affect our decision-making and the demand for skills in the labor market. Inspired by work on complex mathematical problems, he has the urge to foster brainstorming and teamwork in various work environments.
