Dr Achim Schuetzwohl
Lecturer In Psychology

Summary

Not good enough to make it as a professional football player, too short sighted to become a pilot with Lufthansa and living as a winemaker in the south of France not yet in my mind, I had the gut feeling that psychology might be a worthwhile alternative. Early on I developed an interest in the psychology of the emotions, a topic that dominates my research until today. Most of my academic life I spent at the University Bielefeld, interspersed with two excursions to the Universities in Giessen and Osnabrueck. I joined Brunel in 2007.

Qualifications:
