Joan_Christodoulou, Ph.D. 


Ιωάννα Χριστοδούλου


My childhood was full of adventures, from living in two different countries and four different states, to attending more grammar schools than I can recollect. Constantly being introduced to new environments, new cultures, and new people instilled in me a respect and curiosity for the human condition.


As a first generation Greek American, I strongly believe in the value of varied perspectives in language, life, and any field of study. My family, my travels, my relationships, my education, and my investigations guide and nourish me as a researcher, an educator, and life explorer.




Ph.D. in Applied Cognitive Psychology, Claremont Graduate University
M.Phil. in Social & Developmental Psychology, University of Cambridge, UK
B.A., University of California, Berkeley
