Dr. Kathryn M. Hauschild joined the Farmingdale State College faculty as an Assistant Professor of Psychology in Fall of 2022. She is a developmental psychologist by training with expertise in early cognitive development and autism spectrum disorder. Her research work bridges the areas of developmental, cognitive, and clinical psychology to better understand how individuals gain and categorize knowledge about the people and objects in their everyday environment. This work serves her overarching goal of contributing to theoretical frameworks that account for the shared relationship between core cognitive competencies such as face perception, category knowledge, and language acquisition, which together support successful social information processing.
