A celebrated figure in his areas of expertise, Dr. Soper has accrued more than 40 years of professional excellence, inspiring the lives of both students and colleagues alike.

In preparation for his lauded career, Dr. Soper first sought formal education, earning a Bachelor of Arts at Yale University in 1966. He followed this accomplishment with a Master of Arts in experimental psychology from the University of Connecticut in 1972, subsequently earning his Doctor of Philosophy in physiological and comparative psychology from the same university in 1974. While working toward his doctorate degree, he served as a predoctoral fellow at the University of Connecticut from 1972 to 1974. He is a licensed psychotherapist.

Having an insatiable appetite for research, Dr. Soper delved into the field of psychology after studying brain-behavior interaction and speech pathways in monkeys. Discovering he was more interested in human subjects, he went back to school to complete further clinical training. Recently, he began work on how individuals think while sustaining brain damage. Looking toward the future, Dr. Soper is excited to publish a book of research that he began in 1974 while he was writing his dissertation.
