Sandra Geiger, MSc

Sandra Geiger is a PhD researcher in the Environmental Psychology Research Group with Mathew White and Sabine Pahl. Before joining the University of Vienna, she completed a research master’s in Social Psychology and Psychological Methods at the University of Amsterdam.

Her work focuses broadly on pro-environmental behavior change, including what people think others think about environmental problems (second-order beliefs), as well as how interventions influence non-targeted behaviors (spillover effects). She is also interested in Bayesian statistics and hopes to contribute to making psychological research more transparent, reproducible, and sustainable.

She is affiliated with the Junior Researcher Programme where she helps to develop the scientific aspects of the program, including organizing a summer school and implementing open science.
