J U L I A N O R G E T
After growing up (mostly) in Germany, Julia decided to move to Nijmegen for her studies in 2011. She finished her bachelor's in Psychology at the Radboud University, during which she developed a profound interest in social psychology. After finishing her bachelor's, she first wanted to learn more about the practical implications and applications of social psychology and followed the Behavioural Change master's programme at the RU. Here, she has learned to develop and test interventions aimed at changing behaviour at a group scale. However, unsatisfied with the methodological and statistical clearness, and driven by a desire to better understand both methods and statistics of (social) psychological research, she went on to follow the Behavioral Science research master's programme.
As part of her master's program, she is currently a research intern at the Behavioral Science Institute and also part of the Decision Neuroscience Lab. She will investigate in-group/out-group effects in decision-making games, and investigate a way to reduce intergroup bias.
Her research interests cover many parts of social psychology, but she is particularly interested in topics that have clear practical implications. When she is not busy preparing, executing, or interpreting research, Julia enjoys running, singing in a student choir and organising chess camps for children (especially girls).
Julia has not yet published any peer-reviewed papers.
