Alin Coman

Psychology & School for Public and International Affairs
AB Adviser

I am a faculty member in the Department of Psychology, jointly appointed with Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. Much of the work that we do in my lab focuses on the cognitive and social processes by which individuals influence one another's memories, beliefs, and emotions. A native of Romania, I graduated with a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from New School for Social Research, The New School, in 2010, and spend two years as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. I joined Princeton in 2012, where I happily reside with my wife and child. When I'm not thinking about ways to experimentally influence people's memories, beliefs, and emotions in the lab, you might see me riding my bike, jogging, or fishing on the towpath. I can't guarantee, though, that I'm not thinking about experiments.
