Professor Loboschefski trained as a developmental psychologist with an emphasis on cognition across the lifespan. His current research interests are focused on the changing nature of identity within the Millennial and Gen-Z generations, and how this changing identity affects reasoning about legal, moral and social justice issues.

His earlier research focused on searching for a biomedical diagnostic test for Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In addition, Loboschefski has worked with Sweet Briar’s “Science by Inquiry” program for more than a decade. His peer-reviewed work has been published in Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback and Current Pediatric Reviews, and he has received research grants from The Thomas F. Jeffress and Kate Miller Jeffress Memorial Trust and the Commonwealth Health Research Board of Virginia, as well as community grants for the PACE (Promoting Academic and Community Engagement) program from the Jessie Ball duPont Fund.

When not out terrorizing the Sweet Briar community in his T. rex costume, Professor Loboschefski and his sidekick Otto can be found barking at deer in the yard, making sushi, or badly playing the guitar.
