Claudia R. Schneider


Teaching Research Field Work

I received my PhD in Psychology from Columbia University, New York. My research at the intersection of decision science and applied social psychology explores avenues for motivating prosocial behavior to address real world social issues, such as climate change mitigation or intergroup conflict. Towards this end, I have consulted on development work, lead intervention projects, and conducted field research in Africa, Latin America, and India, in addition to lab-based research.

Currently, I am working as a post-doctoral Research Associate at the University of Cambridge, UK. I am based within the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication and the Cambridge Social Decision-Making Laboratory, Department of Psychology.

In addition to the above research themes, I work 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.
