PhD Student, Department of Psychology, Harvard University

Originally from Victoria, Canada, Tessa Charlesworth received her B.A. summa cum laude from Columbia University in New York City. Tessa is now a second year Ph.D. student in Harvard’s Department of Psychology, under the supervision of Professor Mahzarin Banaji. Her research focuses on when, why, and how implicit attitudes change. Tessa explores change by looking at both natural change across development and across cultural time, as well at induced change following targeted learning and interventions.
