Radhika Santhanagopalan


Graduate Resident Fellow

Radhika is a third-year PhD student in Psychology, studying the development of social cognition in children. She is interested in how children develop beliefs about gender, race, and other social categories. Radhika graduated with a BS in Biopsychology, Cognition, and Neuroscience at the University of Michigan.

She is passionate about global activism and outreach, and hopes to find more ways to bridge research with social impact. Having lived in Hong Kong, Singapore and the UAE, Radhika is a walking identity crisis, and has yet to figure out how to concisely answer the question: where are you from? Radhika loves hiking (or at least the idea of it), trashy TV shows, singing with her a capella group, and judging restaurants by the quality of their hot chocolate.
