Tobias has been pursuing a research agenda around analytics and decision making both at McKinsey (e.g., on debiasing judgmental decisions and on leveraging machine learning to develop highly transparent predictive models) and at University of Cambridge, UK (e.g., the effect of mental fatigue on decision bias).

Tobias holds a PhD in finance from University of Frankfurt, an MPhil in psychology from University of Cambridge, an MA in economics from UWM, and has done undergraduate studies in business administration and law at University of Giessen.
