Katrina Schleisman, Ph.D.


Katrina Schleisman is a Minneapolis native. She loves the Twin Cities so much that she completed her B.A. in philosophy and psychology, PhD in cognitive neuroscience, and post-doctoral fellowship in neuroscience all at the University of Minnesota. Since working for Adventium Labs, she has participated in project teams to author content and conduct educational research for multiple federal grant-sponsored projects, including iNeuron and CellEnergy, educational apps whose educational efficacy have been demonstrated in large-scale classroom studies.

Katrina is currently the Principal Investigator on a three-year National Institutes of Health-sponsored project to create and evaluate an app that teaches the neurobiology of substance use disorders to adolescents and young adults in treatment. She contributes to Adventium projects as a Senior Research Scientist by injecting her perspectives on the cognitive neuroscience of learning and memory, educational best practices, and human factors to ensure that Adventium's tools and processes are engineered with people in mind.
