Prof. Dr. John Rauthmann
John Rauthmann leads the work group "Differential Psychology, Personality Psychology, and Psychological Assessment" at Bielefeld University. He studies the dynamic interplay between persons and environments, or how persons structure and navigate their daily lives, thereby creating niches that may themselves have implications for their personalities and development. He aims to capture person and environment variables with a multi-method approach in the lab and in the field. Rauthmann studied psychology at the University of Innsbruck (Austria), obtained his doctorate and habilitation from Humboldt University of Berlin, and worked as a professor at Wake Forest University (NC, USA) and University of Lübeck.
