My name is Dr. Shane McLoughlin and I am passionate about helping people who have biologically-rooted psychological differences to communicate and cooperate with one another and thrive across a range of settings. I believe that merging the fields of differential psychology and behavioural psychology to be a promising approach to large-scale behaviour change.
Teaching: I spent two years working in a school helping to teach functional living skills to children with autism before moving to the UK to study, earning my PhD in 2019. I have taught psychology, research methods, and statistics at three different universities, and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Research: I am an active scientist having published several research articles, with more in the works. I am currently a member of the Heterodox Academy, the International Society for Intelligence Research, and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science.
Things I love:
Diversity of ideas – if everyone agrees all the time, we stop improving.
Classical liberalism – do whatever you want, but your right to swing your arm ends at my nose.
Data – it’s how good scientists make informed decisions that will help more people.
