Arianne Herrera-Bennett


Arianne did a post-doctoral stint in the lab from 2020-2021. Her undergraduate studies at the University of Toronto were in cognitive psych, math, and philosophy. However, during my graduate studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians University, my research interests took a shift toward statistics and metascience, including questions such as: How do Questionable Research Practices inflate meta-analytic effect sizes, and how powerful are publication bias tests to detect this bias? What types of misconceptions do researchers fall prey to when it comes to drawing statistical inferences from data, and can these be improved? And can cross-validation techniques be used to predict the replicability of effects?
