Barnard Social Interaction Lab

About Us

We are a team of researchers studying human social interaction in the Department of Psychology at Barnard College. Our lab is interested in understanding how people think, feel, and behave when they interact with others, as well as how people's experiences and behaviors are influenced by their interaction partners. We study "face-to-face" social interactions in a variety of settings and relationships, and we examine psychological, behavioral, and physiological processes as they unfold naturally over time.
