Meredith Meyer, Ph.D.
Psychology House 103
Dr. Meyer is a developmental psychologist, with a focus on cognitive development in the early childhood years. After receiving her Ph.D., she worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the psychology department at the University of Michigan. Dr. Meyer researches the ways in which typically-developing children categorize the social- and non-social world, and how this categorization influences other cognitive processes like stereotyping, gender development, and language use. She also researches how children’s and adults’ beliefs about talent (e.g., assuming it is natural and unchangeable vs. flexible) impact achievement. Dr. Meyer teaches classes in Child and Adolescent Development, Lifespan Development, and Research Methods.
