Dr. Stone’s research generally focuses on understanding how autobiographical memories and collective memories and individuals’ confidence in said memories are shaped through social interactions. He was also recently awarded three different grants: an NSF grant to examine jury decision-making, a CUNY Collaborative Incentive Grant (CIRG) to examine the divergent roles prejudice and dehumanization play in the decision-making process throughout the judicial system and a PSC-CUNY grant to examine how 9/11 memories are transmitted to the next generation. His research has been published in top psychology journals including Perspectives on Psychological Science, Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, and Psychological Science. He is currently the lead editor of a forthcoming book entitled Contextualizing human memory: An interdisciplinary approach to understanding how individuals and groups remember the past.
