Julia Bader is a PhD candidate at the Center for Doctoral Studies in Social and Behavioural Sciences (CDSS) and an academic member of staff at the Chair of Political Science II, European Politics. She completed her B.Sc. degree in Psychology at Regensburg University, Germany, and holds a M.Sc. degree in Applied Social and Political Psychology from Keele University, UK.
In her master thesis Julia researched biases and blind-spots in social psychological experiments, conducted in the context of violent intergroup conflicts. Besides intergroup conflicts, Julia’s research interests lie in the areas of (European) social identity and ideology. With regard to research methods, she is particularly concerned with experimental survey studies and action research projects.
Julia has got a side interest in philosophy, especially with regard to critical theory. Most recently, she participated in the Munich Philosophical Masterclass on ‘Scientific Pluralism’ by Prof. Helen Longino, Stanford University, US.
