Kevin Bennett Ph.D.

Kevin Bennett, Ph.D., is a social-personality psychologist and full teaching professor at The Pennsylvania State University, Beaver Campus. His research—personality science at the intersection of urban design and mental health—addresses three big questions: (1) What are the meaningful ways in which people differ in personality, emotion, and engagement with physical spaces? (2) What are the root causes of these individual differences? (3) What are the important outcomes of all this? His work has been published in leading journals in psychology, education, and urban design.

Dr. Bennett earned his Ph.D. in Psychology from City, University of London in the UK and degrees from University of Michigan (B.A., Psychology) and the University of New Mexico (M.S., Experimental Psychology). He is the coordinator of the psychology program at Penn State Beaver and a fellow at the Centre for Urban Design and Mental Health in London, UK.
