Karol Osipowicz, Ph.D.
Assistant Teaching Professor
Karol ‘Dr.O’ Osipowicz is a Cognitive Neuroscientist. During his time as a Psychology undergraduate at Drexel University, he developed a strong interest in evolution, brain function, and cognitive research. Following the completion of his undergraduate studies, Dr.O received a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, with a focus on cognition and human brain mapping, from Thomas Jefferson University. It was his interest in the biological basis of cognition developed and nurtured at Drexel that led him to pursue his doctoral degree. Dr. O’s research has focused on the application of advanced neuroimaging to the study of human brain function and anatomy. This research has spanned a number of topics including cognitive plasticity and neural reorganization, psycholinguistics, memory, epileptogenesis, and the methodological advancement of multimodal neuroimaging. At Jefferson, he also contributed to the direct clinical application of advanced neuroimaging by providing functional and anatomical brain mapping for neurosurgical patients. Combining his backgrounds in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience and innovative approach to lecturing, Dr. O taught various courses in Drexel’s Psychology Department as an Adjunct Professor before formally joining the department as an Assistant Teaching Professor.
Outside of his time in the classroom and laboratory, Dr.O enjoys spending time with his wife and dog, exercising, and exploring Philadelphia and its surrounding areas on motorcycle. He moved to Philadelphia as an undergraduate and has not left, calling South Philadelphia his home since 2007. Dr. O invites you to discuss cognition, evolution, neuroimaging, or other topics of interest and is excited to collaborate with both colleagues and students alike.
