The Situationist

Nalini Ambady at Harvard Law School

Posted by The Situationist Staff on November 8, 2010

On Tuesday the HLS Student Association for Law and Mind Sciences (SALMS) is hosting a talk by Tufts psychology professor Nalini Ambady entitled “Nonverbal Behavior: Accuracy and Contagion.”

Professor Ambady is a Neubauer Faculty Fellow and professor at Tufts University.  Her research focuses on interpersonal perception and communication, particularly in relation to the accuracy of judgments, the influence of personal and social identities on cognition and performance, and the mechanisms of nonverbal and cross-cultural communication.  She has received accolades for her research into the ways that people can perceive others’ sexual identity and political affiliation from photos of their faces.

Professor Ambady will be speaking in Pound 107 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.

Free bagels will be provided! For more information, e-mail
