Dr. Ben Eppinger
I completed my PhD at Saarland University in 2008 and then moved to Princeton University for postdoctoral training (2007-2010). After the time in Princeton I spent two years as a research scientist at the Max-Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin before taking the position of an assistant professor at the Psychology Department at Technische Universität Dresden. Since August 2016 I am an associate professor in the Psychology Department at Concordia University and since June 2017 a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in cognitive neuroscience of healthy decision-making in human aging.
