In front of Basilica of Venice, before the 2nd lockdown of 2020.


I am a (cross-cultural) social psychologist interested in researching on values, stereotype accommodation as well as old age stereotypes and discrimination. More recently, I also research on methods-related issues. I hold degrees in Sociology, Social Sciences and Psychology from universities in Romania, the Netherlands and Germany respectively.

As of February 1st, I am a post-doctoral researcher (wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter) in Team Social Survey (lead by Dr. Oshrat Hochman) at the department Monitoring Society and Social Change at GESIS-Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in Mannheim.

In addition, I am a visiting scholar to prof. Klaus Boehnke at the department of Psychology and Methods, Jacobs University Bremen.

I believe in research and teaching which treat participating individuals as human beings who each has their own life story, individual trait characteristics and, most importantly, opportunities in life.

Thank you for your active interest in my current and past projects. Get in touch in case you want to know more about my projects, want to collaborate, or you would like to discuss presentation possibilities.

Dr. Adrian Stanciu
