Dr Matthew Dry
Senior Lecturer - School of Psychology
Matt completed his PhD in Psychology in 2007 at the University of Adelaide, and then took up a post-doctoral research position at the University of Leuven in Belgium. He has been a lecturer in the School of Psychology at the University of Adelaide since 2011. His research has focused on the mathematical modelling of cognitive and perceptual processes, psychopharmacology, and (more recently) pedagogical research into tertiary education teaching and learning. He holds an Office of Learning and Teaching (OLT) grant investigating the impact of adaptive learning software, such as McGraw-Hill Education’s LearnSmart, on academic outcomes.
