Janeen Loehr, PhD

Janeen Loehr is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan. She was introduced to the delightful idea of using science to study people while completing her B.A. (Honours) degree at the U of S. She completed her Ph.D. in cognitive psychology at McGill University, studying action timing in music performance as a member of the Sequence Production Lab. Interest in interpersonal action coordination took her to the Social Mind and Body Group at the Donders Institute for Brain, Behaviour, and Cognition in the Netherlands. She has since come full circle and is back to studying how people act and interact as a faculty member at the U of S.
