Alicia Seidl's research focuses on interindividual differences in prosocial and unethical behavior with a particular focus on dishonest behavior. In addition, she studies self-knowledge, defined as an accurate representation of what one is like, as well as the process of advancing self-knowledge and the corresponding results this may bring. She is also interested in online research, research methodology, and research ethics.
In her first doctoral project, she is investigating differences between various incentives for study participation in terms of effectiveness and resulting data quality.
