Instructor of Psychology

Joneen M. Schuster, Ph.D., joined the faculty at the University of Southern Indiana in 2008 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology.  In 2005, Dr. Schuster completed her doctorate in Experimental Psychology at Kent State University, Kent, OH, with a focus in cognitive neuropsychology and developmental psychology.  Prior to completing her graduate degree, she worked as a research consultant at the University of Washington, Child Development Mental Retardation Center and as a neuropsychology technician at the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio.   Dr. Schuster moved to Evansville from Chapel Hill, NC, where she completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of North Carolina that included research on outcomes of federally funded early intervention services. 

Her research interests cover a broad range of applied topics related to brain/behavior relationships, with special interest in the behavioral development of infants and young children at risk for developmental delay.  Dr. Schuster has experience in test development.  She is a member of a research group that works with the Kent Inventory of Developmental Skills (KIDS), an early childhood assessment tool published in the U.S. that has been translated for use in 14 countries to date.  As part of her KIDS work, she collaborates with international associates from a range of disciplines who share an interest in cross-cultural differences in early childhood development.
