Contributing Faculty

Richard W. Riley College of Education and Human Sciences

Degree Program Ph.D. Education

Dorin Stanciu is a psychologist, currently teaching and conducting research in academia. He’s mostly interested in self-agency and its relations with the new technologies, including virtual communities. His formation is mainly cognitive psychology, but he values equally the other approaches and doesn’t believe in overarching dogmas.

He works on research projects involving user-needs analyses, use-centered design, self-regulation of learning (in children and adults), critical thinking, and has a special interest in cyberpsychology and the way we adopt and adapt to new technologies.

Dorin has a PhD in Psychology and a PhD in Education Sciences and doesn’t see a very near end to his learning. In fact, he admits he chose this career to be able to learn even more. Dorin is grateful to his loving wife for tolerating his affair with statistics.
