About Me

Welcome to my webpage!

My name is Julia Kneer and I am currently working as Associate 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. Since 2022, I am officially a promotor in 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.

In my private time I love spending time with my friends and family. You might find me at the beach – There would be no life without the sea <3 – right?!

Have a nice stay but do not procrastinate too long 😉
