Linda Chang, PhD

MindCORE Postdoctoral Fellow, Starting Fall 2021

Linda received her BA in Cognitive Science from Yale University where she explored whether non-human animals share human-like intuitions about fairness and equity. She completed her PhD in Psychology at Harvard University funded by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, examining the impact of context-dependence in social evaluation and choice. Linda’s research investigates the psychological mechanisms underlying bias and discrimination in social decision-making. Her work aims to unpack why inequality persists in consequential contexts. She is interested in translating insights to create interventions that reduce harm and increase equity.
