John Paul Minda.

PhD in Cognitive Psychology, UB

Assistant Professor, Higher Education

“I'm currently a tenured Associate Professor at the Department of Psychology at the University of Western Ontario, and also a core member of our Brain and Mind Institute, which is an interdisciplinary research institute for Cognitive Neuroscience. I spent some time as acting chair of the Psychology department and also spent 4 years as the director of our graduate program. I was pretty well prepared for this because UB's program was very comprehensive and I had opportunities for research work, learned about grants, travelled to conferences, and also had many opportunities for leadership and teaching. My supervisor's attention to detail and methodological rigor was legendary, and I still carry a lot of those lessons with me.” – John Paul Minda
