Jiannong Shi is a senior researcher at the Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences and he is also a professor of University of Chinese Academy of Sciences and a guest professor of Aalborg University, Denmark. He worked in University of Munich, University of Michigan, Yale University, University of Adelaide, and Regensburg University as a visiting scholar respectively.
He focuses his research in the field of intelligence, giftedness, creativity, and Problem Based Learningtheoretically and practically. He and his team conducted a series cognitive and neuropsychological studies on cognitive development and brain function of gifted children. Meanwhile, he developed a bio-socio-psycho- model to guide gifted education and creativity cultivation in kindergarten, primary, and secondary schools in China. He authored (or co-authored) 11 books in the field of child development and gifted education, as well as more than 160 journal articles and book chapters since 1990. He served as the president of Asia-Pacific Federation of WCGTC twice (2002 – 2004, 2010 – 2012) and the director of Research Center for Supernormal (G/T) Children at the Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is also a committee member of the International Research Association for Talent Development and Excellence and serves as an editor-in-chief of Talent Development and Excellence.
