Erin McCormick

Office: PH 217


I am a first-year PhD student in behavioral decision research.


I received my B.A. in Psychology from Harvard University in 2010.


I'm interested in basic research about judgment, decision-making, problem-solving, and emotion, as well as applied work on behavior during emergencies.

My current research includes a project on lie detection using reaction time, and several projects related to the measurement and mitigation of cognitive biases (for example, confirmation bias). My advisor is Karim Kassam.
