Thomas Schreiner is an assistant professor at the Chair of Marketing & Customer Insight at the University of Hamburg. He studied economics and business administration with a focus on quantitative economic research at the University of Kiel. He gained international experience during the ICPSR Summer Program for Quantitative Methods in Social Science Research at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, USA) and as a visiting scholar at Massey University (Auckland, New Zealand).
Thomas Schreiner has published his research on non-compensatory decision rules and product design in established marketing journals (Journal of Marketing Research, International Journal of Research in Marketing, Journal of Product Innovation Management).
