Emily G. Liquin


I'm a fifth year PhD student at Princeton University, working in Tania Lombrozo's Concepts and Cognition Lab. I also collaborate with Alison Gopnik and the the Gopnik Cognitive Development and Learning Lab at UC Berkeley. Before graduate school, I received my BA in Psychology and Cognitive Science from Northwestern University.

I study how children and adults learn about the world by exploring and asking questions. My research asks how and why information search is selective: why do humans feel compelled to explore in some settings but not others? My research is funded by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program.
