About me

I am Hyesung Grace Hwang, a PhD candidate in Developmental Psychology at Washington University in St. Louis Psychological & Brain Sciences Department.

I am investigating how social cognition develops, specifically how social exclusion and discrimination develops in early childhood. I am deeply interested in how children learn to categorize and view people based on race and accents and how diversity present in early social environments could influence their development.

I am currently training with Professor Lori Markson at the Cognition & Development Lab.
