Dr. Michael J. Richardson
University of Cincinnati

Investigates the lawful dynamics of human perception, action and cognition and has expertise in ecological psychology, cognitive and human-movement science, perception-action, joint-action and social movement coordination, symmetry and group theory, nonlinear dynamics, and nonlinear time-series analysis.

Dr. Richard C. Schmidt
College of Holy Cross

Investigates how people coordinate their bodily movements when they interact socially. Research has found that movements in social interactions are dance-like and synchronized. The objective is to understand the dynamical and cognitive processes that underlie this social coordination as well as understand their breakdown in pathologies as such autism and schizophrenia.

Dr. Rachel W. Kallen
University of Cincinnati

Investigates the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral consequences of living with devalued or stigmatized identities. Her applied research interests focus on broadening participation for underepresented groups at all stages of the STEM pipeline. Her teaching interests include social psychology, the psychology of stigma, and research methods and statistics.

Dr. Elliot Saltzman
Boston University

Studies the application of the experimental, computational, and theoretical tools of nonlinear dynamics and complexity theory to the investigation of human sensorimotor coordination and control. Dr. Saltzman has researched the dynamics of sensorimotor coordination in skilled activities of the limbs and speech articulators, focusing most recently on issues of temporal patterning of action units.

Dr. Steve J. Harrison
University of Nebraska, Omaha

Studies the sensorimotor dynamics that support our everyday capabilities to effectively physically interact with the world around us. His research investigates how the regularity of coordinated motor behavior and the informational basis of perception might be understood as self-organizing phenomena, constrained by the multi-scale interacting dynamics of nervous-system, body, and environment.

 
Dr. Paula Fitzpatrick
College of Holy Cross

Investigates the development of fine motor skill, the relationship between motor coordination and social skills, and the contribution of social coordination to social problems in autism. The objective is to analyze patterns of coordination in children, adolescents, and families and develop models that can be applied to create treatments and interventions to help remediate problems.
