Hi, I am

Christina Strobel

About Me

I am a digital economist & behavioral scientist. My passion lies at the intersection of artificial intelligence & human behavior. I come to data science and AI from a background in quantitative behavioral science. This background equips me to work on bridging the gap between the technology sector and the broader population.

Here are some quick facts about me: I hold a PhD in Economics, with a focus on Accountability and Appraisal of Artificial Intelligence, and I previously conducted research at Yale University. In my role as Incrementality Measurement Lead at Google, I managed experiments to measure the effectiveness and ROI of advertisements for key clients in Central Europe.

What I do


As a PostDoc at the Institute for Digital Economics and a member of the Human Centered Artificial Intelligence (HCAI) working group, I conduct research on how humans react to AI & automated decision-making systems. As a service to the profession, I refereed for Journals such as the Journal of Economic Psychology, Decision Analysis, HCII Late Breaking Papers Springer LNCS, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, and the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics.


As a speaker at scientific conferences and business events, I spoke for example at the HCI International 2021 and the Google Responsible AI Group and actively participate in committees and workshops such as the Fachaustausch "Vertrauenswürdige KI ‘Made in Germany‘ des Bundesministeriums für Digitales und Verkehr (BMDV) or the "Interactions of Humans and Algorithms" Workshop 2023 at TU Berlin. As a member of the FOCUS.ICT Task Force Normungsroadmap, I am also actively involved in AI standardization efforts.


As a lecturer at the Hamburg University of Technology and the International School of Management (ISM), I teach lectures and seminars in 'Applied Game Theory,' 'Behavioral Online Experiments,' 'Digital Value Creation,' and 'Economics of Information Capitalism.

Committee work

As a member of the European AI Alliance and the DIN Expertenkreis KI-Normung und -Konformität, I work as an ambassador to transfer scientific results into norms and standards.


As a fellow at ForHumanity, a task force leader at the KI-Bundesverband, and a mentor in the All Tech Is Human - Responsible Tech mentorship program, I work towards developing an #infrastructureoftrust for AI.


As the founder of the AI ecosystem consultancy AlgoTrust, I support companies in establishing processes that ensure an ethical, sustainable & innovative development & use of AI.
