Sebastian L. Kübel obtained his master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, Neurosciences and Rehabilitation Sciences from the University of Freiburg, Germany. He joined the Department of Criminology in May 2020 as a PhD student and works in the ERC funded CRIMETIME project (ERC Consolidator Grant 772911). In his PhD project, Sebastian examines the role of short-term mindsets in the victim-offender overlap, and which (personal and environmental) factors condition short-term mindsets. For this purpose, he uses longitudinal data from the Zurich Project on the Social Development from Childhood to Adulthood (z-proso). Sebastian is mainly interested in criminological theory, and human time perception and time perspectives’ effects on decision-making and behavior.
