Laura Niemi, Ph.D.

Laura Niemi, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. She conducts research at the intersection of moral psychology, cognitive science, and psycholinguistics. She is interested in moral judgment and aims to increase understanding about when and why people disagree about actions being right or wrong. She pursues this through research investigating how social forces — such as ideology and membership in social categories — are reflected in systems of language usage, thought and action.
