Jamie Amemiya, PhD

Hello and welcome to my website! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Occidental College. I am broadly interested in the development of social cognition as it relates to how children and adults think about societal problems. My current research interests include how children and adults reason about the causes of social inequality, how they represent social categories and societal hierarchies, and their reasoning about why people disagree. Broader topics of interest include causal reasoning, counterfactual thinking, science education, social categorization, and achievement motivation.
