Joshua (Josh) Lovett is a second-year doctoral student in the psychology program (focus: community and prevention research). Josh attended Duke University, where he studied psychology and education. Prior to pursuing graduate studies, Josh was a Fulbright Scholar in South Korea, where he spent three years teaching ESL to a wide range of students. He is broadly interested in the social and behavioral contexts of learning, especially in the social-emotional competencies of teachers and how this impacts a variety of factors in the classroom and school. He is also interested in participatory methodologies and the ways this might be used to create more context-specific social-emotional learning programs and uplight the voices of students, teachers, and others as experts of their own experiences. He is a member of Kim Schonert-Reichl's SEL Lab at UIC. Outside of his work, Josh is interested in traveling, reading, and watching true crime documentaries.
