Dr. McLane currently works at the University of Pennsylvania in the Field of Preventive Medicine and Public Health. She holds degrees from McGill University (BA, International Development Studies), Temple University (MA, Speech Pathology), Brown University (MD, Doctor of Medicine), and Harvard School of Public Health (MPH, Global health). Dr. McLane is particularly interested in adult learning disabilities and how they affect one’s self-perception. She is also focused on how environmental factors – such as light, sound, and personal-time-monitoring devices – can be built into schools and workplaces in order to improve productivity and orientation. Her work also involves questions of distributive justice, and she is interested in this topic as it applies to cognitive differences, personal learning-needs, and cultural perceptions of fairness.
