Two UCSB Professors Named APS Rising Stars


The Association for Psychological Science has named Daniel Conroy-Beam and Zoe Liberman among its new group of APS Rising Stars. The designation recognizes outstanding psychological scientists in the earliest stages of their post-Ph.D. research careers for innovative work that has already advanced the field and signals great potential for continued contributions.

Conroy-Beam, whose research examines how humans integrate multidimensional preferences, was chosen for his proposed algorithm illuminating the psychology of mate choice. Liberman received APS Rising Star status for her work exploring the origins of human social cognition in the context of its developmental and evolutionary foundations.
