Dr. Kaufman is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Saint Louis University. He directs the Cognitive & Affective Psychophysiology Laboratory, with research interests focusing on executive control of attention across the lifespan.

His areas of clinical expertise include neuropsychological assessment across the lifespan, with particular focus on TBI and educational difficulties. In addition to his academic work, he directs Gateway Neuropsychology, which provides assessment and therapy services to the greater St. Louis region.
