Congratulations to TEDxAtlanta 2019 speaker alum Sara Valencia Botto! Her talk unveiling the initial results of an early childhood development study conducted at Emory University’s Infant and Child Lab was featured by TED on TED.com.
Since appearing on the TEDxAtlanta stage, Sara successfully graduated with her doctorate from Emory University and joined the university’s Psychology Department as a faculty member in 2020. Her publication on sensitivity to evaluation in toddlers has been featured in various outlets, including ABC News, the Huffington Post and other major international newspapers.
Her research on the developmental origins of reputation investigates when, how and why we care about what other people think. Her goal is to understand why we care about our reputation as well as the factors that contribute to inter-individual differences.
