Jason R. Finley

Assistant Professor of Psychology

Fontbonne University

I am interested in how technology and the human mind shape each other. The way I see it, human beings have two defining qualities: the ability to reflect on and direct our own thinking (metacognition), and the propensity to craft our environment to augment our thinking (offloading). My research interests concern the limitations of human cognition, particularly learning and memory, and how those can be overcome by improving metacognition and/or by offloading aspects of cognition onto the environment. I am highly skilled at research design, statistical analysis, and programming.
