Christopher R. Madan

University of Nottingham, UK

Christopher R. Madan is an Assistant Professor in the School of Psychology at the University of Nottingham in Nottingham, UK. He completed his PhD in Psychology at the University of Alberta in 2014, including a visiting scientist position at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf and followed by a postdoctoral research fellowship at Boston College. His research combines cognitive psychology approaches with neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, EEG) and computational modelling. He is particularly interested in investigating factors that make some experiences more memorable than others—including emotion, motivation, and pre-existing semantic knowledge—and how these influences can manifest in future decisions. He also specializes in characterizing inter-individual differences in brain morphology, particularly with respect to aging, dementia, and cognitive abilities.

Dr. Madan received a 2021 Early Career Award from the Psychonomic Society and a 2017 Rising Star award from the Association for Psychological Science. He is a Fellow of the Psychonomic Society and AdvanceHE. He is currently an associate editor for Behavior Research Methods and a consulting editor for Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, along with other editorial roles, particularly with the Journal of Open Source Software and Collabra: Psychology. Dr. Madan has published over 100 journal articles and three books: An Introduction to Matlab for Behavioural Researchers (2014, Sage), Academia and the World Beyond (2021, Springer), and Memories that Matter (2022, Routledge).
