About me

Paul Seli, Ph.D

I'm an Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Duke University.

My research explores the causes, consequences, and associates of mind wandering. Although the bulk of the literature has shown that this pervasive experience is often associated with negative consequences (e.g., driving accidents, problems in educational settings, and workplace accidents), in my recent work, I've been exploring the possibility that mind wandering can sometimes be engaged strategically, and that it can have beneficial consequences.

Outside of academe, I have numerous hobbies, and am particularly fond of painting/graphic art (see the "My Artwork" tab), playing/writing music, cycling, and exploring nature.
