Michael Wenzler

Member of the Social Processes.

Since November 2015, Michael Wenzler has been a researcher at the IWM in the Social Processes lab. In his PhD project, he examined the influence of power on moral judgment and decision-making. In the project “Power and behavior in social interactions”, he investigates how power affects power-holders’ sense of responsibility towards their subordinates.

Michael Wenzler received his M.Sc. in Psychology from the University of Bamberg in 2014. From October 2014 till September 2015, he worked as a research assistant at the Department of Personality Psychology and Psychological Assessment at the University of Bamberg.
