Anne Krendl is an associate professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. Her work uses behavioral and social neuroscience approaches to understand how people process, store and apply information about others, and how those processes change over the lifespan.
Her research examines questions related to social stigma (e.g., race, age, gender, mental/physical illness) and how being stigmatized affects its targets. She also examines how healthy aging affects social cognition (e.g., how older adults interact with others).
