About Devin Michael Burns

Dr. Burns grew up in Albuquerque, NM, where he learned to love the outdoors. He enjoys hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, and other such activities. He does NOT particularly enjoy mosquitos and ticks, but is coming to grips with the fact that they will be his constant companions on such adventures. Other interests include playing guitar, singing, juggling, cooking, gardening, bicycling, soccer, racquetball, yoga, and meditation. He and his wife have two young daughters that keep them busy, but also keep offering them a fresh perspective on enjoying life.

Dr. Devin Burns, assistant professor of psychological science, received the Faculty Experiential Learning Award. He was recognized for overhauling a class, Psych 2200: Research Methods. The class is required for all students majoring in psychology and is one of their most statistical and computer-extensive classes. Instead of merely talking about research in this class, Burns guides his students through conducting professional psychological research.
