Research grant for a joint project by Tim Pawlowski and Augustin Kelava.

Tim Pawlowski and Augustin Kelava successfully applied for a 3-year research grant within the Innovation Funds Framework of the Cluster of Excellence ‘Machine Learning – New Perspectives for Science’ at the University of Tübingen.

The interdisciplinary project at the intersection of economics, psychology and sports science is focused on analyzing behavioral responses to emotional cues in sports settings with intensive longitudinal multilevel data. As such, the project intends to test theoretical concepts from behavioral (sports) economics by further developing and applying Bayesian (dynamic latent variable) models that blend properties of multilevel models, time series models and generalized additive models.
