Miss Belinda Xie

School of Psychology

After completing a Bachelor of Science with Honours at the University of Western Australia, I moved to Sydney to begin my PhD. I am currently a Scientia PhD Scholar in the School of Psychology. My research primarily explores how people reason from repetitions of evidence and the extent to which people discount redundant information. To address these questions, I conduct online experiments and then use computational models to understand how participants are reasoning in these experiments. In addition to this area of cognitive science, I have also completed projects related to the psychology of climate change.
