Julia is a PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. Born and raised in Berlin, Julia moved to the UK after high school: First for work, and subsequently for her BSc in Psychology at the University of Sussex. Following some research assistantships and travel across the southern hemisphere, Julia came to the Netherlands to study Cognitive Neuroscience at Radboud University.

In the past, Julia has studied how (grammatical) gender in language shapes our ideas about gender roles in the world. In her PhD projects, she currently focuses on how grammar guides how we perceive, understand and memorise everyday events.

In her spare time, Julia volunteers both at work and in the community, enjoys doing yoga and going for family adventures outdoors.
