Richard Jagacinski

Professor, Department of Psychology
Center Oversight Committee

Oversight Committee Representative, 2013-2014

My bachelor’s degree is in electrical engineering from Princeton University, and my doctoral degree is in experimental psychology from the University of Michigan. My research explores rhythm in athletic and musical performance (e.g., golf, drumming), vehicular control, the effects of aging on perceptual-motor skills, and creative behavior. My teaching explores perceptual-motor control and learning, the behavioral impact of technology on quality of life, parallels between decision making and control in dynamic contexts, and research methods.
