  • Biography

    Dr. Paul Romanowich received his PhD in experimental psychology in 2007 from UC San Diego, completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the UTHSC in San Antonio, and was previously an Assistant Professor of Psychology at California State University, Chico. Dr. Romanowich joined the faculty at the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2013.

    Dr. Romanowich has a strong record of research, publishing six peer-reviewed articles since 2007, five of which are first-authored. Most of these publications have centered on applying behavioral analysis methods to generate changes in health behaviors such as smoking abstinence. He has experience in applying for grants and currently has several under review. Dr. Romanowich has a great deal of teaching experience, primarily at the undergraduate level, but has also taught a graduate level survey course in psychology and supervised masters and honors thesis students.
