Divita Singh


Divita Singh will be joining Ahmedabad University, as an Assistant Professor in the School of Arts and Sciences, in July. Currently, she is working as a DST-CSRI postdoctoral fellow, at the Interdisciplinary Program in Cognitive Science, at IIT Kanpur. Her post-doctoral project investigates the mechanism underlying self-referential processing, by studying the effect of self on attentional prioritisation and action execution – one of the aspects of the social cognition that she admires. She did her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Psychology at Banaras Hindu University and Ph.D. in Cognitive Science at IIT Gandhinagar. Her doctoral thesis explored academically enthralling Cognition-Emotion interaction by investigating the influence of bottom-up factors (emotion and perceptual saliency) and top-down factors (working memory) on visual attention. She uses cognitive and behavioural experimental methodology to understand the intriguing realms of human cognition. Her specific area of research interest includes Visual Attention, Emotion, Self-referential processing, and working memory. She is also interested in effect of stress on decision making. Apart from researching on facets of human behaviour, Divita enjoys reading fictional novels and practicing various dance forms.
