Gabbrielle Johnson is joining the Philosophy Department as an Assistant Professor of Philosophy. Gabby works in philosophy of psychology, philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of science, and philosophy of technology. She specializes in computational models in vision and social cognition, and her projects in these areas explore the nature and structure of social bias.
