Julia Richter received the B. Sc. Degree of Psychology at Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster in September 2013, and the M. Sc. Degree of Psychology at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena in September 2016. During her studies in Jena, she spent a term abroad in Sevilla, Spain. She has worked as a student assistant in the faculty of Differential Psychology, Personality Psychology & Psychological Diagnostic in Münster and in Dr. Julia Zimmermann's project Personality Development of Sojourners (PEDES) in Jena and in Hagen. Presently, she is working as a research assistant in the Department of Differential Psychology, Personality Psychology and Psychological Assessment at Bielefeld University. More specifically, she is working for Prof. Dr. Christian Kandler's DFG project "Study of Personality Architecture and Dynamics (SPeADy)". She is also working on her dissertation, which she plans to finish by 2020. The prospective title of the dissertation is "Personality changes over the life course".

Her major fields of interest are diagnostics and the broad definition of personality (as the Big Five/Big Six personality traits, interests, self-related concepts, and values), personality development over the life course, as well as influences on personality changes (e.g., geneXenvironment interactions, major life events, etc.). Methodically, she is primarily working with latent structural equation modeling techniques, e.g. latent growth curve models (imputed in Mplus).
