Laurie Santos

What Makes Humans Happy

Psychologist Laurie Santos is an expert on human cognition, its origins, and the evolutionary biases that influence our all-too imperfect life choices. As a professor at Yale and a research scientist, Dr. Santos teaches happiness and well-being via behavioral change through positive psychology. Dr. Santos believes students can learn tools to be more grateful, procrastinate less and increase social connections. She believes that those positive habits will decrease mental health issues among students and create happier and more motivated people. In her talk, Dr. Santos provides advice on how to engage our uniquely human faculties to counteract evolution, choose more wisely, and live happier lives.
