John Boyd

Dr. John Boyd received his Ph.D. in psychology in 1999 from Stanford University, where he studied with Dr. Philip Zimbardo. A frequent contributor to the scientific literature on time perspective, he was instrumental in the construction of the Zimbardo Time Perspective Inventory (ZTPI) and was the first to identify the transcendental-future Time Perspective. His more recent academic work has explored the interaction of thoughts and feelings through time. Boyd brings a strong record of translating science into practice through his current role as Research Manager at Google, and in previous roles as Director of Design Research at Yahoo! and as Director of Scientific Affairs at Alertness Solutions, a boutique international consulting firm specializing in human performance management. He lives in Dublin, California, with his wife, Nancy.
