Katharine E. Scott, Ph.D.

In my research, I synthesize social and developmental psychology frameworks and methodologies to evaluate the role adults could play in preventing or mitigating children's social biases. How do adults think about children’s social biases? Could adults be trained to reduce children’s biases? Which socialization agents could impact children’s social biases?

I am currently an NIH postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University working with Drs. Sandy Waxman, Onnie Rogers, and Terri Sabol.


I completed my PhD in social and developmental psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I worked with Drs. Patricia Devine and Kristin Shutts
