Emiliana Simon-Thomas

Emiliana Simon-Thomas is the Science Director at the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley. She earned her doctorate at Berkeley, using behavioral and neuroscientific methods to examine how aversive states like fear affect thinking and decision-making. Emiliana transitioned to studying positive emotions and pro-social states like affiliation, love of humanity, compassion and awe during her postdoctoral research, and then served as Associate Director/Senior Scientist at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford. Back at Berkeley, Emiliana recently co-led GG101x, The Science of Happiness, a Massive Open Online Course on the EdX platform with over 170K registered students. Her current scientific focus is on the biological underpinnings and advantages of pro-sociality. Looking at how connecting with others, being kind, grateful and cooperative benefits health, well-being, psychosocial functioning and performance, Emiliana’s work aims to fully explore the potential for – as well as the benefits of – living a more meaningful life.
