Jamie Amemiya is a developmental psychologist interested in the development of social cognition as it relates to how children and adults think about and respond to societal problems.

Her current research interests include how children and adults reason about the causes of social inequality, how they represent social categories and societal hierarchies, and their reasoning about why people disagree. Broader theoretical topics of interest include causal reasoning, counterfactual thinking, social categorization, and achievement motivation.
