Ein Portrait von Hannes Krause

Hannes-Vincent Krause studied Psychology at the University of Hamburg (B. Sc.) and the Humboldt University of Berlin (M. Sc.). After completing his studies, he joined the Weizenbaum Institute as a research associate in 2018 and started his Ph.D. in Information Systems at the University of Potsdam. In his dissertation, he investigated the effects of social media usage on users’ well-being, focusing on the interplay of technological platform features and psychological processes to explain this relationship. He completed his Ph.D. in November 2022.

His work as a postdoctoral researcher in the research group “Well-being in the digital world“ is dedicated to further examining the impact of digital technologies on human well-being, emotions, cognitions, and behavior. Methodologically, he focusses on experimental (e.g., pretest-posttest control group designs, online experiments) and survey designs (cross-sectional and longitudinal). His work has been published in leading scientific journals (e.g., Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, Current Opinion in Psychology) and conference proceedings (e.g., International Conference on Information Systems, European Conference on Information Systems).
