Kevin Winter

Member of the Social Processes Lab

Kevin Winter has been a researcher and PhD student at the IWM since September 2016. He works in the Social Processes Lab. In his PhD project, he examines how mutual trust between social groups can be established and how existing stereotypes can be changed through increased cognitive flexibility (e.g., by means of communication). Moreover, he investigates the processing of online evaluations (e.g., comparison portals in the internet) and the circumstances under which users show confirmatory tendencies in information selection.


In 2016, Kevin Winter graduated from the University of Tübingen with a M.Sc. in Psychology. During his studies, he focused on organisational psychology as well as knowledge, communication and media psychology. Besides, he worked as a student assistant at the University of Tübingen (Applied Cognitive Psychology and Media Psychology), at the user experience division of a psychological consulting firm and at the IWM.


Kevin Winter is an active member of the Fachnetzwerk Sozialpsychologie zu Flucht und Integration, a network of German social psychologists on the topic of refugees and integration.
