Frank T. McAndrew

Frank McAndrew is the Cornelia H. Dudley Professor of Psychology at Knox College and an elected Fellow of several professional organizations, including the Association for Psychological Science (APS). He is an evolutionary social psychologist whose research is guided by the simple desire to make sense of everyday life, and he is currently studying gossip, aggression, and creepiness.

His research has appeared in dozens of different professional journals and it is regularly featured in popular media outlets such as The New Yorker, NPR, the BBC, The New York Times, and NBC’s Today Show. In 2005, he was identified as one of the “key individuals” in the history of environmental psychology by a survey of researchers in that field, and in that same year he was a nominee for the prestigious CASE Professor of the Year Award.

The articles that he has written for “The Conversation” have been picked up by a wide range of news outlets including the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, The Observer, CNN, the Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, The New Republic, the Huffington Post, the Guardian, The Daily Beast, Slate, Salon, PBS NewsHour, Scientific American, & Business Insider.

Consistent with his long tenure at a liberal arts college, Professor McAndrew is also an award-winning teacher who is particularly proud of the fact that almost 100 of his former students have gone on to complete a doctoral degree in psychology or a closely related field.

McAndrew is a blogger for Psychology Today Magazine, and his blog can be found here:
