Professor John Dunn - TITLEHOLDER.
My research focuses on cognitive psychology - the study of knowing, learning, thinking, judging, reasoning, and remembering. A common theme in my research across these different areas concerns how different kinds of psychological processes can be identified. To this end, I have been active in developing an approach, called state-trace analysis, that can be used to answer this and related questions.
