Chris Dancy is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Bucknell University. Chris teaches data structures and algorithms, software engineering and design, computes and society, and Introduction to AI and Cognitive Science. With his research, he studies the interaction of cognition, affect, and physiology and how these interactions relate to human information processing and decision-making by developing computational cognitive agents and simulations, and running experiments. He models such interactions in computational cognitive architectures that substantiate a unified theory of cognition and computational models of physiology. Dr. Dancy applies subsequent models of cognition, affect, and physiology for behavior simulation, theory exploration, HCI, and human-AI (including societal connections) purposes.
