Leonie completed her B.A. in Psychology and Philosophy at the University of Oxford and then specialised towards the business side of Psychology in her M.Sc. in Work and Organisational Psychology at Maastricht University. She wrote her master’s thesis on charismatic Leadership and has since felt very passionate about the topic. During her one year at a management consultancy in Frankfurt she also gained practical insight into the business world and, more specifically, the challenges leaders face today. Now Leonie is excited to be back in research to further explore leader-follower dynamics in the course of her PhD, in which she will focus on contextual effects on charismatic leadership.
