Gregory Feist (Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley) is Associate Professor of Psychology in Adult Development at San Jose State University. Dr. Feist is widely published in the psychology of creativity, the psychology of science, and the development of scientific talent.

Tomi-Ann Roberts

Tomi-Ann Roberts (PhD, Stanford University) is Professor of Psychology at Colorado College.

The first paper she co-authored on this topic, Objectification Theory, is the most cited article in the over 40-year history of the APA journal Psychology of Women Quarterly. She leverages psychological science as an expert witness and consultant in cases involving objectification as a form of sexism and gender discrimination.
