Kyle Jensen Headshot


I am a student, a teacher, and a researcher. I am currently a graduate student in the Experimental Psychology Program at New Mexico State University. My emphasis of study is cognitive neuroscience and I work under James Kroger in the NMSU Mind Brain Lab, specializing in the neural dynamics of complex cognition. My current projects focus on using EEG to study relational complexity and neural computation in the frontal pole. I also have an interest in positive emotions, particularly awe, as well as interests in health behavior promotion.

I previously attended Brigham Young University – Idaho, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Psychology with an emphasis in Health Psychology. After graduating I worked for BYU-Idaho as an adjunct professor teaching an Introductory Psychology Course for a few semesters. I have worked at various levels and positions as a researcher, including work as the lab manager for Scott Martin’s Positive Psychology Lab and as the data manager for a the Alere Youth Development organization, a series of grant funded evidence based programs. I currently work as a teaching assistant and graduate researcher at NMSU as I progress towards my Master’s degree. Here I plan to continue my educational pursuits as I develop my career in academia.
