Lily Tsoi

Lily Tsoi is an Assistant Professor in the School of Psychology and Counseling at Caldwell University, New Jersey. She was born in Puerto Rico and grew up in New York City. She was the first in her family to go to college, earning a B.A. in Neuroscience from Wellesley College and a Ph.D. in Psychology from Boston College. She completed her postdoctoral training at Princeton University prior to joining Caldwell University. Lily's research investigates the extent to which people consider the mental states of others across different social interactions. She also examines neural and behavioral dynamics between people during conversations. Currently, her primarily role is teaching, and she loves introducing undergraduate students to psychological research via demonstrations in class, semester-long class projects, and laboratory research experiences. Her mission is to increase interest in undergraduate research at her university. Outside of work, Lily enjoys exploring local neighborhoods, making different ice cream flavors, and playing board games with family and friends.
