Alaina Talboy, PhD
Welcome! I am a cognitive scientist who is passionate about education, research, and all things math & science!
My research focuses on understanding how people use information to make informed decisions.
My philosophy and approach to research, writing, and life in general is guided by the three principles of scientific thinking.
At this time, Dr. Talboy is writing a book, an academic field guide, for first year graduate students (and those further along) that provides the tools and strategies students need to set themselves up for success, make it through the job market, and excel with an offer in hand at the end of the road.

Her latest speaking engagement was at the Women in Tech Global Conference on June 7-11, 2021. She talked about her personal experience with imposter syndrome, and then stepped back to cover the different layers in workplaces and society that contribute to women feeling like imposters. At the end, she gave several concrete examples for how to address the larger systemic issues that drive feelings of imposterism.
