Biography

Jose E. Náñez, Sr. is a President’s Professor of psychology in the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences and executive director for community outreach and student services in the office of the senior vice president for educational outreach and student services at Arizona State University. Nanez is also a professor in the interdisciplinary graduate program in neuroscience and professor of cognitive neuroscience in the Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University.

Professor Náñez conducts research in visual perceptual learning, neural plasticity and malleability, and cognition. He also studies cognitive processes in Spanish-English bilinguals. As an executive director, he creates and implements new strategies to enhance students' academic achievement and university life acculturation, with a strong emphasis on Hispanic, first-generation-university-going, and low SES students.
