Marianne Promberger PhD

I am a behavioural scientist with a Ph.D. in the psychology of decision making (research in this field has become popular under the term of "behavioural economics").

I am also a teacher of the Alexander Technique and a member of ATI. I feel lucky to have trained with Peter Nobes, whose course included many fabulous visiting teachers such as Fiona Cranwell, Gilles Estran, Barry Kantor, Penny O'Connor and Galit Zeif (to name a few). And no, this is not about posture.

I obtained my Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania in 2008, working with Jonathan Baron on patient acceptance of computerized decision aids, and on second-order preferences in the context of public policy.

Subsequently, as a post-doc at King's College London, I investigated acceptability of (and objections to) financial incentives in health contexts, and as a post-doc at Kingston University, I worked on research in vaccination decisions and vaccination advocacy.
