Yael Granot is a Research Scholar in Law and a Justice Collaboratory Fellow at Yale Law School. Granot received her PhD in social psychology from New York University, where her research explored how attentional processes influence legal decision-making. In particular she has used eyetracking to demonstrate how people systematically watch and make decisions about video evidence in discrepant ways. At the Collaboratory, her work focuses on examining adolescent perceptions of the criminal justice system. She is exploring how an increasing police presence in schools affects the development of adolescents' relationships to the police.
