Julia Haaf

I am an assistant professor in the Psychological Methods group, Department of Psychology at the UvA. Before my current position I was a postdoctoral research fellow working with EJ Wagenmakers, also at PML. I earned my PhD in quantitative psychology in 2018 from the University of Missouri working with Jeff Rouder.

My research focuses on the development of Bayesian hierarchical modeling approaches to assess individual differences in cognitive phenomena. Examples of such phenomena are interference effects, recognition memory, and subliminal priming. Key to understanding individual differences in cognitive tasks is to disentangle stable, qualitative individual differences from sample noise. A central aim of my work is to develop statistical modeling solutions that are tailored to capture key theoretical constraints. As an open science enthusiast, I try to make my work as accessible as possible to other researchers and the public.
