David J. Johnson is a social-cognitive psychologist and postdoctoral researcher at the University of Maryland, College Park. He received his Ph.D. in Psychology from Michigan State University in 2016. His research employs computational models and secondary data analyses to study the psychological processes that underlie decisions. He has used this approach to understand decisions where law enforcement have shot civilians, focusing on how several factors—such as civilian race, officer race, and the context of the shooting—influence law enforcement decisions to use force.
