Luke Chang is an Associate Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College and directs the Computational Social Affective Neuroscience Laboratory and co-directs the Consortium for Interacting Minds. He completed a BA in psychology at Reed College, an MA in psychology at the New School for Social Research, and a PhD in clinical psychology and cognitive neuroscience at the University of Arizona with Alan Sanfey, PhD. Luke completed his predoctoral clinical internship training in behavioral medicine at the University of California Los Angeles and a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Colorado Boulder under the mentorship of Tor Wager, PhD. His research program is focused on understanding the neurobiological and computational mechanisms underlying social interactions. He is actively involved in the emerging fields of social, affective, and decision neurosciences and uses advanced models to understand how we learn and make decisions in social contexts and how pain and emotions can be regulated through social interactions. His work has been recognized by early career awards from the Association for Psychological Science, the National Science Foundation, and the Social & Affective Neuroscience Society. When he’s not at the lab, Luke enjoys cooking, kayaking, skiing, bike riding, producing music, and learning new statistical techniques and technical computing skills.
