An update after my first week (in Basel)
I met with the professor with whom I am conducting research at the University of Basel last week. Our first week together went great! He fully informed me of the studies he has conducted in the past, is currently working on, and future ideas for research. He provided me with different options for studies that I can work on with him. There are two studies that we will be working on together. One is on the abstractness of Money and how it influences people, and the other study is on the abstractness of language and how it influences people. Over the next few months we will design a study or two for each of these topics and gather data. I am sharing an office with two other ladies. They both speak little English but I speak some German so we are still able to converse. The building is located just off campus and is easily accessible. It is comforting how easy it is to get around the city. I wish Arizona had public transit systems like these.
