Kevin Connolly


I am a cognitive scientist and philosopher who works on learning. My research focuses especially on perception-based learning, as found in experts from wine tasters to radiologists to bird watchers. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Minerva Schools at KGI, a new university founded on the principles of the science of learning. Before that, I was an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia where I live. And before that, I earned my Ph.D. at the University of Toronto. You can hear more about some of my work on NPR/WHYY, or take a look at some of my publications
