A native of Toronto, Natalie Kacinik spent several years after earning her Ph.D. as a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the University of California - Davis before starting her faculty position at Brooklyn College. Her research investigates how the mind and brain process language, ranging from simple individual words like "table" or "dog" to complex figurative expressions like "a bird in the hand is better than two in a bush." Other areas of interest involve memory and attention as they relate to language comprehension as well as more social aspects of communication like discourse, theory of mind and pragmatics. She typically teaches Introductory Psychology and the Psychology of Language, BUT IS CURRENTLY ON SABBATICAL UNTIL JAN 2017.
