Jamie Amemiya, PhD

Hello and welcome to my website! I am currently an NSF SBE Postdoctoral Fellow at UChicago working with Dr. Lin Bian in the Early Social Thinkers Lab. I will be starting as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Occidental College in August 2023. 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.
