Dr. Paul Verhaeghen is a Professor of Psychology and Director of Graduate Studies at Georgia Institute of Technology.  He received his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Leuven in Belgium in 1994. 

Historically, most of his lab work and research has centered around cognitive aging and what happens to people's minds as they grow older.  Dr. Verhaeghen is also interested in the link between creativity, mood disorder, and different types of rumination, as well as working memory dynamics.  His current experimental work focuses on cognitive control, or dealing with complex tasks in a complex environment, during the aging process.
