C. Shawn Green, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Green received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D in Brain and Cognitive Sciences from the University of Rochester. He then completed post-doctoral training in computer vision and machine learning at the University of Minnesota, before joining the Psychology faculty at UW-Madison in 2011. His primary research program focuses on developing and evaluating methods to improve individuals’ perceptual and cognitive skills. His research program utilizes many reasonably standard approaches in psychology and neuroscience (e.g., psychophysics, fMRI, DWI, EEG, etc.), but also frequently takes advantage of certain modern forms of media (e.g., video games, virtual reality, etc.) in order to better understand how experience influences perceptual and cognitive skills. He’s been an author on over 70 peer-reviewed publications including in such high-impact journals as Nature, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Nature Reviews Neuroscience, Neuron, and Current Biology, that together have been cited over 12,000 times. He has also emphasized disseminating science in more public outlets – including writing a cover article for Scientific American focused on video games and the brain and appearing on the Netflix show ‘Bill Nye Saves the World’.
