New Distinguished International Professor

Prof. Dr. Clancy Blair from New York University

We welcome Clancy Blair, Professor of Cognitive Psychology from New York University, as our new Distinguished International Professor.

Clancy Blair is a developmental psychologist who studies self-regulation in young children. His primary interest concerns the development of cognitive abilities referred to as executive functions and the ways in which these aspects of cognition are important for school readiness and early school achievement. He is also interested in the development and evaluation of preschool and elementary school curricula designed to promote executive functions as a means of preventing school failure.

As part of his Distinguished Professorship, Clancy Blair will be visiting Tübingen from May 15 for two weeks to collaborate with researchers from LEAD.
