What is SINGO

SINGO is a lab meeting/seminar for individuals interested in furthering their understanding of Social Interactions in Groups and Organizations.

How do we make sense of other people and of ourselves in organizations? Building on a long tradition of research and theory in social psychology, and invigorated by an infusion of new ideas and methods emerging from cognitive psychology, social cognition researchers have shed new light on many classic social psychological questions and have extended these ideas in applied (e.g., organizational) contexts.

The lab group/seminar has both a practical and theoretical focus. Practically, it focuses on how to identify and formulate questions that are both provocative and tractable, how to decide on appropriate research designs and strategies, how to write an effective research article, and how to navigate the publication process. Theoretically, it provides a more complete understanding of our knowledge of how people think about individuals and groups in organizations.

Our meetings are primarily discussion based, revolving around potential and ongoing research conducted by our faculty, postdocs, doctoral students, and visitors.
