Open Science

About me

Welcome to my website! Here, you can find some information about what I'm currently working on and past projects.


I'm a post-doc at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Munich. I'm a cognitive psychologist/psycholinguist and an open science enthusiast. My research is mainly about the cognitive processes underlying skilled reading, and about how children learn to read.


I'm also an ambassador for the Center of Open Science. I sometimes blog, mainly about being an early career researcher (out of lack of creativity, the blog is called Xenia Schmalz's Blog). Here, I blogged about why I decided to create my own website.


Since April 2018, I organise a monthly event called Open Science Beers in Munich. If you are interested in joining, please sign up to this Google Group or this facebook group to receive updates about upcoming events.
