prof. dr. Paul van den Broek


I am professor of Education Sciences at Leiden University and professor in cognitive sciences at the University of Minnesota, USA. I received my PhD in 1985 from the University of Chicago, and have been on the faculty at the University of Minnesota since 1987 and at Leiden University since 2008. In my research, my collaborators and I examine the cognitive and neurological structures and processes involved in learning and reading, from early childhood to adulthood. The goals of the research program are to identify such structures and processes and their development –both when they succeed and when they fail-, and to derive implications for effective diagnostic and intervention tools.
