Amishi Jha is an associate professor of psychology at the University of Miami, where she serves as the Director of Contemplative Neuroscience for the Mindfulness Research and Practice Initiative, which she co-founded in 2010. She received her PhD from the University of California-Davis, and received her postdoctoral training at the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center at Duke University in functional neuroimaging. The research in her laboratory, The Jha Lab, is dedicated to studying the neural bases of attention and the effects of mindfulness-based training programs on cognition, emotion and resilience. She has been systematically investigating the potential applications of mindfulness training in education, corporate, elite sports, and military contexts. In addition to her own published body of research, her work has been featured at, the World Economic Forum, NYTimes, NPR, Time, Newsweek, the Aspen Institute, the Pentagon, the Journal of Special Operations Medicine, and Joint Force Quarterly. Her pioneering work on mindfulness and attention is currently in use broadly, from organizations like the US military and New Zealand Defense Force, to professional sports teams, medical schools, and businesses.
