Assistant Professor Psychology

Dr. Hubbard is the Director of the NeuroCognitive Translation Lab (nct-lab), Assistant Professor of Psychology, and Resident Faculty at the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior. He joined the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2019, after completing an NIMH-funded fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Hubbard completed his Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Texas at Dallas, and his B.S. in Psychology at Michigan State University.

His professional interests involve the advancement of fundamental theory and cutting-edge methods within cognitive neuroscience to better understand and predict differences in human mental abilities. He strives to accomplish this through the rigorous study of typical and abnormal, behavior and neural phenomena.  He applies a broad range of behavioral, brain imaging (e.g., magnetic resonance imaging, functional near-infrared spectroscopy), and computational (e.g., machine learning, network analyses, pattern analyses) approaches to translate basic cognitive science research into practical application.

Dr. Hubbard will be accepting graduate student applications Fall 2020. For more information about joining the NeuroCognitive Translation Lab, please email your CV to Dr. Hubbard.
