Julia Bahnmueller studied psychology at the University of Tuebingen, Germany, where she received her PhD in 2018. Julia is a trained dyscalculia therapist allowing her to both put her theoretical knowledge into practice and to feed research and teaching with questions and input resulting from the work with children, learning therapists, instructors and parents. 

Julia joined the Centre for Mathematical Cognition in April 2020.

Julia's research interests are in the fields of behavioural and neural underpinnings of numerical processing and learning, as well as the development and training of numerical and mathematical competencies. She is particularly interested in how and when language might shape the way we process numbers.
