Dr. Joanna Morris, associate professor of cognitive science, graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College with a major in Psychology.

In 1990, she was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship which enabled her to pursue an M.Phil. in Theoretical Linguistics at Wolfson College, Oxford University. She received her Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1998.

She is interested in the structure of lexical representations and in applying electrophysiological techniques, in particular event related potentials, to the investigation of cognitive phenomena. Her thesis work consisted of investigating the relationship between orthography and lexical stress in English.

Her current research is focused on examining how complex words are represented in the mental lexicon. She teaches courses in cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience and psycholinguistics.
