Luka Katic

Luka Katic earned his first degree in Economics at the University of Novi Sad in Serbia. During his master in business negotiations, he became more interested in how emotions effect our decision making, and the human mind in general. This is when he enrolled master studies in Cognitive Science at the University of Vienna. The two program covered everything from human biology to philosophy of mind. Finally, he was honoured to receive a DPhil offer from Oxford University and a place at Keble College. Luka Katic is now a third year DPhil student of experimental psychology at the University of Oxford. In his work he focuses on social emotions such as guilt and shame, particularly the interpersonal and evolutionary function of guilt, self-punishment as a form of social signalling, and the interplay between guilt, apology and interpersonal relationships. Luka presented his work at scientific conferences in Leiden, Edinburgh, Ljubljana and Vienna.
