My name is Hyesung Grace Hwang and I am currently a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Chicago with Dr. Amanda Woodward at the Infant Learning and Development Laboratory.
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, language, and accents and how diversity present in early social environments could influence their development.
I received my B.A. from University of Chicago, M.S.W. from Columbia University, and PhD from Washington University in St. Louis.
