Justin Matthews is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at California State University, Monterey Bay. His research blends cognitive science and social psychology in the realms of spatial cognition and human depiction in popular media. He currently has two lines of research. The first line aims to better understand how people think about and use physical space in the realm of social relationships and interactions. The second examines how visual depictions of the human body, in various media, influence perceptions of physical and intellectual abilities. He has published in the areas of social distance, language use, human gesture, sexism in the media, as well as judgment and decision making. He holds a B.A. and M.A. in Experimental Psychology from California State University, Fresno, and both an M.S. in Social and Cognitive Sciences and a Ph.D. in Cognitive and Information Sciences from University of California, Merced. He is a first-generation college graduate, and was born and raised in California's central San Joaquin Valley.
