Emily G. Liquin

Hello! I’m a cognitive scientist studying inquiry and learning in humans across the lifespan. I am interested in (1) how, when, and why people seek information and (2) how differences in inquiry translate to differences in learning. I answer these questions using experimental, developmental, and computational methods. My aim is to leverage the findings from my research to improve the efficacy of inquiry in real-world settings.

Starting Fall 2024, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of New Hampshire. If you are interested in joining my future lab, please feel free to reach out! You can also find more information on my lab website.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Psychology at New York University, funded by the NSF SBE Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. I work with Dr. Todd Gureckis and Dr. Marjorie Rhodes.

I started my Ph.D. in Psychology at University of California, Berkeley from 2016-2018, then moved to Princeton University, where I completed my Ph.D. in 2021. I worked with Dr. Tania Lombrozo and Dr. Alison Gopnik. My graduate research was funded by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. I received my B.A. in Psychology and Cognitive Science from Northwestern University.
