Meet the Team

Nancy Salay, Ph.D, Founder

Nancy has 15+ years of experience teaching cognitive skills, both at universities and in the private sector.  (Find out about her current research here.)  She has long struggled with the problem of how to bridge the gap between theory and practice; Do It Better is the result. Extending this idea one step further, she founded ESC (Embodiment, Systems, and Complexity: Research Institute for Embodied Cognitive Science).  The mission of the institute is to foster inter-disciplinary activity in a broad range of areas, not just in those traditionally under the cognitive science umbrella.  Researchers who are committed to making their work applicable to the general public in some way are particularly encouraged to join the institute.  You can find out more about ESC here.
