Dr. Charles Doan completed his Doctor of Philosophy degree through Ohio University in Experimental Psychology. Before earning his doctorate, he also earned his Master's degree from OU in the same area of study. Doan's undergraduate education came from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he studied Psychology with a minor in Statistical Methods.

His primary areas of research interest include topics related to perception, conception, and decision-making. More specifically, he is interested in how our minds extract, represent, transform, store, and utilize environmental regularities to solve complex problems, reason, and make everyday decisions. He is a research associate of the SCOPE Laboratory at Ohio University, regularly attending and presenting novel research findings with students at conferences. These include events affiliated with the Society of Mathematical Psychology, Midwest Cognitive Science Society, and Midwestern Psychological Association.

Dr. Doan embraces the collaborative nature of psychological research and he strives to help students learn the various aspects of the research process through experience in the Psychology Lab on the 4th floor of Mills Hall. He welcomes any student, regardless of their particular interests in cognitive science or psychology.
