Pat Hill

Dr. Hill took up a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Illinois after graduating from Notre Dame, working with Professor Brent Roberts.  He was named an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Carleton University (Canada), before moving on to his current position in Psychology and Brain Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis. Pat teaches and writes in the area of health and personality psychology and various topics in life-span development.


Paul Stey

Paul Stey

Dr. Stey’s research concerned how children and adults arrive at judgments about the moral qualities of actions, and to what degree these judgements are influenced by an  understanding of causality and intentionality.  He was also interested in the relationship between cognitive science and philosophy and how the two fields can be mutually informative. Paul defended his dissertation in Spring 2014 and he took a research position with the Environmental Protection Agency. Paul is a Biomedical Data Scientist at Brown University.
