Mark A. Thornton, Ph.D

Mark studies how people organize their knowledge of the social world, and use that knowledge to make accurate social prediction. To this end he uses a combination of fMRI, text analysis, computational modeling, and behavioral methods. He received his A.B. in Psychology from Princeton University in 2011, and his Ph.D. in Psychology from Harvard University in 2017, before returning to Princeton University for postdoctoral training. He will be starting as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College in July 2020.
