JeanMarie Bianchi

Assistant Professor of Practice

I earned my Ph.D. in 2016 from the University of Arizona in Psychology. I obtained my MA in Clinical Psychology in 2011 at the University of Missouri, St. Louis. I completed my BA at SUNY Albany in 2009 majoring in Psychology and US History.

I currently teach a wide range of courses to undergraduates here at UArizona. My large introductory course introduces new students to the field of psychology. I also teach courses on research design and statistical analysis. I teach two upper-level courses, one on the role of the brain in our psychological functioning and the other on the history of psychology as a discipline.

While my current work is more teaching focused, my research interests center around evolution and human behavior. 

Research Interests:

  • Evolution and human behavior
  • The cognitive, behavioral, and emotional strengths associated with growing up in harsh and unpredictable environments

Courses Taught: 

  • PSY 150A1 - The Structure of Mind & Behavior (2023)
