    • Biography

      Dr. Stephanie Gray Wilson is a cognitive psychologist with a particular interest in adult language processing and the fallibility of memory. In the psychology department lab, Dr. Wilson and her students have used eye tracker, advanced technology that measures gaze duration and eye movement patterns as an individual looks at a visual object, like a picture, video or page of text, to help investigate issues related to memory errors and the processing of facial expressions by victims of childhood abuse.

      Dr. Wilson applies cognitive psychology principles to the design of courses she teaches to enhance student learning. She has flipped her statistics courses, moving traditional lectures, reading and other knowledge acquisition to outside of class so she can spend the majority of class time putting that knowledge to use by engaging students to solve problems. It is Dr. Wilson’s goal to ensure that her students are educated consumers and confident users of statistical information.

      Dr. Wilson is the director of Honors and Undergraduate Scholarship at Capital. She is passionate about promoting undergraduate research, actively involving students in her research program, and supporting students in their independent research projects.
