Dr. Matt McGlone, Communications Studies

Dr. McGlone is a CWGS Faculty Affiliate

Posted: April 22, 2008
Dr. Matthew McGlone (Ph.D., Princeton University, 1994) investigates the cognitive, cultural, and psychological foundations of interpersonal communication and persuasion. His primary research interest is the linguistic strategies people use to overcome communication challenges.

Dr. Matt McGlone first became interested in the influence of stereotypes on academic performance as an undergraduate statistics instructor in the 1990s. He was perplexed to observe many talented women and ethnic minority students stumble on standardized tests, despite appearing to master concepts in homework, class discussions and one-on- one interaction.
