Prof Kevein Dunbar (GS3NA)
Professor of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology and Director of Laboratory for Scientific Thinking, Reasoning, & Education, University of Maryland College Park, USA.
Kevin Dunbar is Professor of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology at the University of Maryland College Park. His research focuses on the ways that scientists think, reason, and interact while they are making discoveries and inventing new technologies and the reasoning strategies they use.
Professor Dunbar spoke on how women and men scientists solve problems and interact when conducting experiments, based on naturalistic observations of scientists in working in their labs, at the Gender Summit 3 North America 2013 (GS3NA). He will discuss the role of gender and how scientists approach the unexpected and learn from mistakes from observations of the habits of researchers in different molecular biology labs.
