Northeastern State University psychology instructor Alissa Baker-Oglesbee was invited to talk about her research at the University of Oxford in Oxford, England, in early June.
Baker-Oglesbee, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, presented her psychological study, “The Fallibility of Science in Moral Reasoning,” at the Experiments and Ethics conference.
Oxford’s philosophy department hosted the interdisciplinary conference, which was intended to “foster dialogue and explore connections among various empirical and theoretical approaches to ethics.”
A native of Jay, Baker-Oglesbee earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from NSU in 2008. She earned her Master of Science degree in experimental psychology from Fayetteville State University in Fayetteville, N.C., in 2011.
Baker-Oglesbee has been a full-time instructor in NSU’s Department of Psychology and Counseling since 2011.
