Anna Kornadt joined the University of Luxembourg in 2019 as a full professor in psychology with a focus on aging and lifespan development. Since 2020, she is head of the Institute of Lifespan Development, Family and Culture (LDFC) and Study Director of the Master en Gérontologie. Anna is also an elected member in the Faculty Council of the FHSE.

Anna received her Diploma in psychology from the University of Mannheim in 2008 and her Ph.D. in psychology (summa cum laude) from Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena in 2012. From 2013 to 2019 she was a postdoctoral researcher at Bielefeld University.

She is interested in what influences development across the life span (with a focus on midlife and old age) and how developmental outcomes further drive developmental regulation. Her main research areas are the influence of views on aging on developmental processes as well as personality and self-development in older age. She is also interested in the development of social inequality, the psychological foundations of preparation for age-related changes, and the maintenance of health and well-being in later life. To address these research questions, different methods such as (longitudinal) surveys, behavior genetic studys, experience sampling, and experimental studies are employed.

Anna’s research was published in international journals such as Psychology and Aging, Journals of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences, Current Directions in Psychological Science, and the European Journal of Ageing. Anna is a member of the editorial boards of Journals of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences and GeroPsych: The Journal of Gerontopsychology and Geriatric Psychiatry

She has previously worked in and coordinated several large, interdisciplinary projects designed to study development across the life span, such as the Ageing as Future project in Jena and the TwinLife project in Bielefeld. She is also a member of the DFG-funded scientific network "Images of Aging - Via a dynamic life-span model to new perspectives for research and practice”.
