Dr. Hannah Greving

Member of the Knowledge Construction Lab.

Since January 2016, Hannah Greving has been working as scientist in the Knowledge Construction Lab where she investigates perceived ownership, attitudes, and emotions during knowledge transfer in citizen science projects. Before doing so, she had also studied biased representations and emotional reactions in reports on Wikipedia. She has been working at the IWM since September 2010 where she began as a scientist in the Social Processes Lab. During that time, she investigated behaviors and outcomes of health-related Internet searches within the Leibniz-WissenschaftsCampus Tübingen. Moreover, she studied the role of emotions during knowledge acquisition about new medical treatments.


Hannah Greving studied psychology at the University of Groningen (the Netherlands) with the main foci on social psychology and on work and organizational psychology (Master of Science 2010). Subsequently, she started her PhD which she completed in March 2015. In her PhD thesis, she investigated the influence of threat (e.g., due to an illness) on knowledge acquisition and the representation of one’s own state (e.g., one’s health) during information search on the Internet.
