Tania Singer, PhD, is a professor of social neuroscience and psychology, and heads the Max Planck Society’s Social Neuroscience Lab, Berlin. She is a world expert on compassion, empathy and its training, and has a passion for creating bridges between fields that typically never interact. She has initiated and headed one of the largest meditation-based secular mental training studies on compassion, the ReSource project. Linking such findings to the field of (neuro)economics, she developed a Caring Economics approach. She is also heading the CovSocial project, a large-scale mental health study on stress, resilience, and social cohesion during the corona crisis.
