Natalie Awad Schwob, PhD 

Department of Psychology
University of Michigan

I am a cognitive and comparative psychologist in Dr. Alex Rosati's Cognitive Evolution Group at the University of Michigan.


My research interests include the relationship between cognition and behavior, sequence planning in language and action, decision making, and how individual differences in working memory impacts behavior. I am also interested in the evolution and development of motor and cognitive mechanisms of language and the relationship between the motor and language domains. To answer my research questions, my samples include young adults, children, great apes, and monkeys. 

Outside of research, I enjoy data science, programming, science communication and outreach.
