Dr. Hyowon Geon, Associate Professor, Department of Psychology at Stanford University
Hyowon (Hyo) Gweon (she/her) is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University. As a leader of the Social Learning Lab, Dr. Hyo is broadly interested in how humans learn from others and help others learn: What makes human social learning so powerful, smart, and distinctive? Taking an interdisciplinary approach that combines developmental, computational, and neuroimaging methods, her research aims to explain the cognitive underpinnings of distinctively human learning, communication, and prosocial behaviors. Dr. Hyo received her Ph.D. in Cognitive Science (2012) from MIT, where she continued as a post-doc before joining Stanford in 2014.
Annually the Department of Psychology hosts a Colloquia Series throughout the academic year. This exciting program brings us together outside of the classroom to have conversations with the speakers we’ve invited to our campus to share their ideas. You’ll have the chance to hear from international speakers on a wide range of provocative topics.
