Dr. Morton Gernsbacher
Prof of Psychology at University of Wisconsin–Madison
As a professor, Morton conducts research on and teaches classes about human communication. Although a baby boomer, Morton has been an avid and early adopter of mobile and Internet-based technology, including online education and research-based apps. She has enjoyed seeing Building Brave come to life.
When asked if her grade-school friends are surprised that she turned out to be a professor, Morton says no one is surprised that she found a job where she gets paid for talking in class.
