Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology

Taylor Science Center 3018

Trained in cognitive and developmental psychology, Azriel "Azi" Grysman focuses his research on the role of memory in defining the self. He studies people’s personal narratives for events they have experienced and relates these back to broader theories about how this type of memory develops and how individual difference, such as gender or developmental status, play a role in this process.

Grysman’s recent work included examining people’s narratives of anticipated future events as an expansion of how memory is used to plan for the future. He earned his master’s degree and doctorate from Rutgers University.
