Personal background

Hannes Jarke joined the CBR in autumn 2019 after working as an analyst at coordinating the evaluation of multiple large-scale randomised controlled trials for an NGO. His current research focuses on the application of evidence from behavioural science in policy. Specifically, Hannes is involved in R4HC-MENA’s Research for Health in Conflict project, investigating mental health and well-being in Lebanon and the middle-east. He is also interested in topics such as science communication and open science.

Hannes has previously worked with the Cambridge Policy Research Group on publications translating scientific evidence from behavioural sciences for policy makers and the wider public, resulting in multiple reports and one textbook.  In 2018 and 2019, he consulted the European Commission's Joint Research Centre for the Enlightenment 2.0 research programme and contributed to the Understanding our political nature: How to put knowledge and reason at the heart of policymaking report. Hannes holds a BSc and MSc in Psychology from the University of Vienna, as well as a MSc in Governance and Leadership in European Public Health from Maastricht University. He serves as the Director of Operations of the Junior Researcher Programme, which creates research and training opportunities for students from behavioural sciences from around the globe.
