Esther Beierl

Mag. rer. nat., Dr. phil.

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Oxford Centre for Anxiety disorders and Trauma (OxCADAT)

I investigate individual differences in psychological mechanisms that contribute to onset and maintenance of post-traumatic stress disorder. Being a trial statistician and a methodology nerd, I am interested in a wide range of statistical advances, that help me answer these research questions. 

I completed my PhD at Ludwig Maximilian University Munich, Germany, holding a PhD scholarship from the German National Academic Foundation (‘Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes’). In my PhD thesis, I worked on fit indices and factor scores in structural equation modelling.

I regularly review for Psychological Medicine, the European Journal of Psychotraumatology, and the Journal of Traumatic Stress. 

I am an Associate with The Psychometrics Centre, University of Cambridge. I chair the early-career researchers' committee at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford.

In addition to researching mental health I advocate for mental health in my private life by being an ambassador for the charity MQ, which funds mental health research, and by being a certified yoga teacher.
