Dr Claudia R. Schneider

Claudia Schneider received her PhD in Psychology from Columbia University in 2018. Her research focuses on how quality of evidence and the uncertainty around claims stemming from factors such as expert disagreement or biases in reporting are best communicated to support comprehension, transparent information sharing, and informed decision making. She investigates these topics across a range of fields, such as medical decision making, climate change and conservation, education and social policy, as well as intelligence and law. Claudia is also interested in human prosociality as related to society-level issues, such as climate change and intergroup conflict. She studies how social and individual factors interplay to bring about and shape prosocial behaviours, as for instance climate change mitigation actions or support of members of marginalised societal groups. She uses a combination of methods ranging from quantitative surveys to field studies.
