Joanne Kane

Joanne is a postdoctoral researcher in the Psychology Department and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. In 2003 she received a B.A. from Carleton College with degrees in Psychology and Film. In 2008 she received a Ph.D. from the University of Colorado, Boulder in Social Psychology.

Joanne studies judgment and decision making. She is primarily interested in judgments of time (the role of emotion in estimating distance in time and space) and judgments over time (comparing the past and future). With collaborators at the Medical College of Wisconsin, Joanne also enjoys exploring the effects of immigration policy on medical decision making.

In her free time, Joanne likes to play Frisbee, watch movies, consume chocolate ice cream sodas (with chocolate ice cream, of course) and use MAUT to chart every decision she ever makes.
