Talia Robbins

Talia is a fourth year graduate student in the Cognitive Psychology program.

Talia graduated Summa Cum Laude from Muhlenberg College in May of 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology.

Her previous research has focused on decision-making and medication preferences.

Talia’s current research interests include memory and belief updating as they relate to health decision-making. Medication adherence is a critical issue in public health, and understanding how people update their beliefs after a negative health event, such as a heart attack or cancer, can contribute valuable information to the fields of both cognitive psychology and public health.
