Michelle Lee, Lab Manager
Michelle graduated from the University of California, San Diego, where she majored in Sociology and minored in Psychology. She is now the Lab Manager at the Mind and Development Lab -- feel free to drop by and say hi!
Her developmental research interests include metacognitive awareness (what people know about their own thoughts and knowledge -- "thinking about thinking"), the dynamics of social cognition and prosocial behavior, and how children interact with artifacts and technology.
Her other scholarly interests include improving user experience (How can we make things more usable, pleasant, and easier to process for real people?), explaining scientific concepts in a relatable and understandable way (Because science should matter to everyone -- not just scientists), and understanding how to teach & learn more effectively.
