Kate Nussenbaum


I’m a Ph.D. student in psychology at New York University. I work with Cate Hartley to research the development of adaptive learning and memory processes. I am interested in understanding how people learn about the statistical and causal structures of their environments across development, and how changes in those learning mechanisms in turn influence goal-directed memory and decision-making.

Previously, I worked with Kia Nobre and Gaia Scerif at the University of Oxford, studying how long-term memories influence visual attention in children and adults. Before that, I completed my undergraduate degree at Brown, where I worked with Dima Amso to study the development of attention, memory, and cognitive control processes.


Here is my cv.
