M.Sc. Paul Matthias Gorny

Curriculum Vitae

Paul M. Gorny joined the Chair of Human Resource Management as a postdoctoral researcher in September 2019. He did his undergraduate as well as his postgraduate degree in economics at the University of Cologne. He obtained his PhD from the University of East Anglia. His thesis is on Essays on Asymmetries in Contest.

His research interests fall primarily into two subject areas. On the one hand, he examines gender-specific differences in behavior with particular attention to how gender is anchored in language and how this affects behavior in turn. On the other hand, he investigates how human behavior changes when artificial intelligence and robots become part of the interaction environment.

A small part of his research is devoted to the methods of experimental economic research. During his doctorate, he conducted research in game theory with a particular focus on network theory and contests.
