Hunter Priniski

PhD Student in Computational Cognition
University of California, Los Angeles


I’m a Cognitive Psychology PhD student in the Reasoning Lab and Computational Vision and Learning Lab at UCLA. My advisors are Keith Holyoak and Hongjing Lu. I integrate behavioral experiments, computational and cognitive models, and large naturalistic studies to study beliefs through the lens of social cognition. My current projects focus on the formation and correction of misconceptions, the spread of misinformation online, and the structure of people’s belief systems about social issues and science (such as climate change, vaccine safety, and queer issues). Personally, I love warm weather and good music more than maybe anything. My twitter is @HunterPriniski.
