Richard Shiffrin

Richard M Shiffrin heads the Memory and Perception Laboratory in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University--the MAPLAB website gives information about present and past lab members and projects. He is a Distinguished Professor and Luther Dana Waterman Professor and has additional appointments in Cognitive Science (which he founded in 1988) and Statistics.

His research interests are quite broad, more or less covering the fields of Cognitive Science and Psychology. Generally speaking the research involves empirical studies and quantitative and computational modeling of the results. Current projects are generally tailored toward the interests of the graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the lab, and the need to carry out research funded by external grants (presently from NSF and AFOSR).

Descriptions of current projects and relevant links may be found under Research Projects. This page points to personal research, research with recent laboratory personnel, and contains some work in progress in the form of powerpoint talks. A professional biography is found under Curriculum Vitae. The publications list on this page contains links to downloadable articles. The page Hobbies describes two current pastimes, Rock Climbing and Backcountry Skiing, and has some nice photos. The page ASIC Conference gives information about the Annual Summer Interdisciplinary Conference that Shiffrin organizes.
