Maximilian Bergmann is a Research Associate and PhD Candidate at the Institute of Behavioral Science and Technology at the University of St. Gallen. His research focuses on how new technologies and computational methods can be leveraged to better understand and model human behavior, experience, as well as individual differences.
In his current work, he is interested in human cognitive factors (e.g., abilities, traits, and momentary states), their manifestation in everyday life, and how they can be predicted from digital footprints (e.g., mobile-sensing data) by applying AI/machine learning techniques.
Max received a B.Sc. in Psychology as well as a B.A. in Sports Science and Business Administration from Eberhard-Karls University Tuebingen, as a scholar of the university’s parallel degree program. He then achieved a M.Sc. in Psychology with a specialization in business-, organizational-, and applied social psychology.
Prior to joining the IBT, Max has worked in academic and industry research, marketing, and consulting. In his spare time, he is into every sport that involves a ball, spends a lot of time in the mountains to go skiing or biking, and enjoys playing his guitar.
