Joshua Shive, PhD

Professor of Psychology

I am a cognitive psychologist in the Department of Psychology at Tennessee State University. I received my Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2008 and joined the faculty of the Department of Psychology at TSU that same year.

Cognitive psychology is the scientific study of cognition--the mental processes involved in perception, memory, attention, etc. My primary research interest is visual perception.

I am also interested in human factors, an interdisciplinary field of psychologists, engineers, and computer scientists working together to improve the design of things that people use.
