Welcome to my site! My name is Mohammad Wiswall and Social Psychology Ph.D. student to Duke University's Psychology & Neuroscience department. Under the mentorship of Dr. Sarah Gaither at the Duke Identity & Diversity Lab, my research explores how cultural contexts shape social perception and intergroup interactions, stereotype differences and their outcomes, and racial ambiguity.
Previous to starting my PhD, I graduated from Rutgers University-New Brunswick with a BA in Cognitive Science with a concentration in decision-making and neuroscience. With minors in Philosophy and Psychology. I graduated Cum Laude, Honors in Cognitive Science, Henry Rutgers Award Scholar, Paul Robeson Scholar, and Ronald E. McNair Scholar.
Outside of academia I enjoy film photography, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, weight lifting, and outdoors activities such as hiking and fishing :)
