Curriculum Vitae
PD Dr. Daniela Renger

I conduct psychological research at the interface between social and personality psychology on the topics of social recognition, self-respect, and consequences of social inequality. Since these topics are relevant to people in most areas of life, my research also has a direct application link to work and organizational psychology, political psychology, and health psychology.

In the far north of Germany, I teach and conduct research as a lecturer at the Chair of Social and Political Psychology at Kiel University. I completed my habilitation in 2020 with the habilitation thesis “Social Psychology of Recognition: On the Role of Respect and Self-Respect for Society and the Individual.”

For several years, I have been a reviewer for various scientific journals and am currently also a Consulting Editor for the European Journal of Social Psychology. At Kiel University, I organize the Women Scientist Network, which serves the interdisciplinary exchange and networking of women with doctorates.
