About Me

Welcome to my webpage!Julia 9

My name is Julia Kneer and I am currently working as Assistant Professor at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam, Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (picture credits go to Jaap van Rijn). I did my PhD in Social Psychology at the Saarland University (summa cum laude) and worked later as PostDoc at the Saarland University and the University of Cologne. In 2013, I finalized my Habilitation and venia legendi (University of Cologne) and I am teaching and supervising PhD students in Germany and the Netherlands.

As much as I find the research ivory tower comfortable, I am highly motivated to step outside. Thus, I held several talks at different occasions such as school boards, TV, and newspaper interviews etc. to keep the public informed ‘what the heck’ my colleagues and I are actually doing all day long. I also served as editor for the German In-mind Magazine, special issues ‘Medienpsychologie I and II’. Please have a look at the awesome publications we were able to get there:

Medienpsychologie Teil I: Chancen und Herausforderungen im Bereich Lernen und Gesundheit.

Medienpsychologie Teil II: Nachrichten und wir.

wellenIn my private time I love spending time with my friends and family. You might find me at the beach – if I am not already under water scuba diving or on the water sailing. There would be no life without the sea <3 – right?!
