I am honored to report that my dissertation has been awarded with the Lorenz-von-Stein prize. The prize is awarded each year by the Lorenz-von-Stein Foundation for the best dissertation in Political Sciences, Social Psychology, and Sociology at the University of Mannheim. Here’s the press release (in German), and below is a picture of me smiling.
I am also very happy to have received this year’s research award of the Prof. Dr. Anna und Prof. Dr. Jörg Jiri Bojanovsky Foundation. The foundation supports the empirical research of young scientists in the field of social, inter-individual, or cultural processes. I received the award for our article in which Tobias Stark, Andreas Flache, Anke Munniksma and I disentangle the relation between young immigrants’ host country identification and their friendships with natives.
