Mirka Henninger studied psychology at the universities of Mannheim and Glasgow before receiving her master degree from Ludwig-Maximilian-University in Munich. In her Master’s thesis, she investigated experimentally whether the response format of Likert-type scales influenced their measurement properties and conclusion drawn from measurement.
Since 2016, Mirka Henninger is employed at the Chair of Research Methods and Psychological Assessment (Prof. Dr. Thorsten Meiser). As a doctoral student, she takes a particular interest in psychological models with latent variables (e.g. item response theory) with a focus on item dependencies and response biases.
