Julia Kam, PhD

Principal Investigator

Julia is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Calgary. She obtained her PhD from the University of British Columbia under the supervision of Todd Handy, where she established the electrophysiological signatures of internal attention. She then completed her postdoctoral training with Robert Knight at the University of California, Berkeley, where she examined the neural structures and mechanisms supporting internal attention. When she’s not studying about wandering minds, she loves to let her mind wander in nature, in museums, in concert halls, and in the kitchen.
