Amna Hyder

Visiting Fellow

Amna Hyder is a fellow with the Flourishing in Action project at the Archbridge
Institute’s Human Flourishing Lab. She is interested in how education and applied research can be used to maximize human potential. While in graduate school, her research interests primarily focused on computational and cognitive neuroscience, but more recently she has been exploring various domains of social psychology. She has been focusing her attention on sharing this research through storytelling in a podcast called Tethered Minds. She has an entrepreneurial spirit and ran a successful business (BabyChild) from 2018 to 2021, as well as ga rowing wedding photography business
(Amnabil Photography). Most recently, she worked as a director for The Knowledge Society, one of the world’s leading accelerators training teens to be innovative change makers. She hopes to use her research and entrepreneurial skills to help others maximize their own potential.

Through her fellowship project, Amna will create short, animated videos showcasing a variety of research on human flourishing, with the goal of increasing optimism and encouraging people to make their lives more positive and meaningful.
