Jonathan G. Tullis

Associate Professor of Educational Psychology

I'm an associate professor in Educational Psychology at the University of Arizona. After graduating from Dartmouth College with undergraduate degrees in psychology and physics, I earned a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Notre Dame. I taught high school chemistry and physics for two years. Then I earned my PhD in cognitive psychology from the University of Illinois. I currently study how learning environments can prompt learners to capitalize on the innate strengths of memory, compensate for weaknesses of memory, and increase the efficiency of learning.
