Colloquium with Dr. Hyo Gweon, Stanford University

Dr. Hyo Gweon, Professor of Psychology at Stanford University
Dr. Hyowon (Hyo) Gweon (she/her) is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and Director of Graduate Studies for the Symbolic Systems Program at Stanford University. Hyo received her PhD in Cognitive Science (2012) from MIT, where she continued as a post-doc before joining Stanford in 2014.
Hyo is broadly interested in how humans learn from others and help others learn. Taking an interdisciplinary approach that combines developmental, computational, and neuroimaging methods, her research aims to explain the cognitive underpinnings of distinctively human learning, commmunication, and prosocial behaviors.
She has been named as a Richard E. Guggenhime Faculty Scholar (2020) and a David Huntington Dean’s Faculty Scholar (2019), and received the APS Janet Spence Award for Transformative Early Career Contributions (2020), Jacobs Early Career Fellowship (2020), James S. McDonnell Scholar Award for Human Cognition (2018), APA Dissertation Award (2014), and Marr Prize (best student paper, Cognitive Science Society 2010).
