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 trainee teacher of the Alexander Technique, training with Peter Nobes and a trainee member of Alexander Technique International.
(And no, this is not about posture.)

I am a student of Integrative Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute.

I am currently very excited about mind-body unity and the freedom of choice that arises from awareness and non-doing.

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.
