Layla Unger, PhD

I’m a Post-Doctoral Researcher studying cognitive development. In my research, I study how we develop rich, interconnected bodies of knowledge about the world that support our abilities to use language, reason, retrieve useful knowledge from memory, learn new things, and many other fundamental aspects of human intelligence.

I currently work in the Cognitive Development Lab at Ohio State University with Dr. Vladimir Sloutsky. I earned my PhD at Carnegie Mellon University, where I worked with Dr. Anna Fisher.
