Dr. Lisa Fazio studies how people learn new information, both true and false, and how to correct errors in people’s knowledge. She received her PhD from Duke University in 2010 and completed postdoctoral fellowships at both Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. Currently an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology and Human Development at Vanderbilt University, her research focuses on how to mitigate the effects of reading false information and how to increase classroom learning. Her research informs basic theories about learning and memory, while also having clear applications for practitioners, such as journalists and teachers.
Fazio was a presenter on the panel TRUST: Tools to Improve the Flow of Accurate Information at ISOJ 2018 on Friday, April 13 @ 1:45 p.m.
