Dr. McGraw

Co-author, "The Humor Code"
Peter McGraw is a professor at the University of Colorado Boulder and an expert in the interdisciplinary fields of emotion and behavioral decision theory – such as the question of what makes things funny. McGraw has become a leading force in moving the study of humor from the niche to the mainstream. The advantage that he has over his predecessors is his ability to conduct state-of-the-art experiments with the help of the team he directs at the Humor Research Lab (HuRL), a laboratory dedicated to the experimental study of humor, its antecedents and consequences.
