Yana Weinstein

Assistant Professor

Yana Weinstein received training in Cognitive Psychology from University College London (PhD, 2009), where she studied false memory. She then came to Washington University in St. Louis, where she was a Postdoctoral Research Associate, October 2008-December 2012. Her first position was in two Memory Labs (headed up by Roddy Roediger and Kathleen McDermott). There Yana was involved in both basic memory research and applying cognitive psychology to education. Meanwhile, she decided to learn Flash so that she could run experiments online. She then went on to teach Flash and write a textbook about it. Her next position was in the Personality Assessment Lab, headed up by Thomas Oltmanns. Here she developed advanced statistical techniques and expertise in individual difference measures. In the past, she has also consulted as a data analyst for Decision Technology, a UK-based commercial/academic hybrid company that specializes in human decision-making.
