Dr Stacey Humphries

Lecturer in Psychology
Goldsmiths, University of London

I am a Lecturer in Psychology at Goldsmiths. The goal of my research is to understand the organisation and structure of knowledge, meaning, and thought in mind and brain at different levels of abstraction. Current research directions in my lab are focused on understanding the roles that perceptual and semantic representations play in aesthetic experiences and curiosity. Our research uses a variety of methods, including behavioural experiments, functional neuroimaging, neurological patient studies, large scale online studies, and video analysis of dyadic social interactions.

I completed my PhD in Psychology in 2016 at the University of Manchester with Dr. Ellen Poliakoff, Dr. Judith Holler, and Dr. Trevor Crawford. After that, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow with Dr. Anjan Chatterjee at the University of Pennsylvania from 2016-2021.
