Research expertise

My research activity spans human memory and language, human computer interaction and educational research. I have held grants from various agencies including the National Science Foundation, the Australian Research Council, the Institutes of Educational Sciences, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Defense Science and Technology Organization and Defense Research and Development Canada. I have peer reviewed journal publications in outlets including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Psychological Review, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology and the Journal of Memory and Language.

Other indicators of impact include two patents - one on sentence representation and one on dynamic text visualization. Dennis & Humphreys (2001) was chosen by the Australian Psychological Society as one of the 12 most influential contributions by Australian psychologists between 1999-2002 and the Handles text visualization suite on which I have been working for Defense Research and Development Canada was deployed in Afghanistan by the Canadian psychological operations unit.

My research focuses on the application of behavioral, computational and neuroscientific methods to the study of human memory and language. I am currently building a unified model of episodic memory tasks including recognition, associative recognition, source memory, cued recall, serial recall and free recall. I also continue to work on an associative based model of sentence processing, with the current emphasis on understanding vocabulary development.

A line of work that I am currently engaged in and which I think has great potential involves the deployment of smart phones for continuous data collection over the long term (months). In this work, we have developed an Android app that collects images, audio, GPS, accelerometry, wireless, light and a variety of other data, as subjects wear the phone around their necks. Each night the subjects divide their data into contexts and tag those contexts. The research is a collaboration with Mikhail Belkin in computer science and aims to address questions in memory and in machine learning. The technology allows us to investigate the nature of real world context and memory processes that cannot be addressed through laboratory based research alone. In addition, we have been developing algorithms that predict where people will perceive context boundaries as well as the tags that they will assign to these contexts. We believe that big data approaches such as ours provide unique insights that are more relevant to the memory processes in which people typically engage and which are can be more easily translated into useful applications.

Administrative

Administrative expertise

During my time as a faculty member at Adelaide and Ohio State, I have served on a number of departmental committees, search committees etc. During my tenure at the University of Adelaide, I was the chair of the research committee. In 2009 and 2010, I was the Director of Cognitive Science Center at Ohio State University. Twenty four departments drawn from eight colleges are affiliated with the Center, the goal of which is to facilitate interdisciplinary links across the university. While I was director, I administered the Center's small grants program, administered the graduate summer scholarship program, oversaw the Center's shared event related potential and eye tracking assets, reworked the financial structure to improve transparency and promote sustainability as well as organizing multiple seminar series.

Currently, I am the Head of the School of Psychology at the University of Newcastle, where I am responsible for the teaching, research and engagement activities of the School.

Teaching expertise

I have developed and taught a range of courses at the undergraduate, masters and graduate levels including memory and reasoning, memory and cognition, human factors, the psychology of language, judgment and decision making, models of memory and language and introduction to event related potentials.

I have taught memory and cognition to undergraduate classes of over 100 students. The technical nature of the material, the class size, the fact that many of the students are not psychology majors makes maintaining student engagement particularly challenging. I engage in a continual process of innovation to ensure that my students leave with a good grounding in the science of memory. I use many interactive exercises including experiments and in class group work on false memory, autobiographical memory and other issues. I integrate current events into the class room discussion – in particular the areas in which memory intersects with the legal system in cases of false eyewitness testimony and recovered memory issues and I attempt to use what we know about human memory to help students learn and to understand their own learning processes. In recent years, the critical role of testing on memory performance has become increasingly clear and I use a clearly articulated set of learning objectives, on-line exercises and discussion forums to help students optimize the time they spend studying.

Used intelligently, technology can be an effective adjunct to the classroom experience and I am very interested in pushing the boundaries of educational technology. For instance, in my psychology of language class students program online chat bots to simulate the persona of a character that they create. Teams compete to win the end-of-term Turing test for the most realistic and most interesting bots. In a final assignment, they are required to use what they have learned during the class to compare and contrast the language ability of chat bots and those of humans.

While there are limits to the reach of technology, there can be little doubt that the use of technology has the potential to be disruptive to current models of instruction provision. One bottleneck to providing mass online courses is assessment. Multiple choice style questions are easily implemented, but are not effective means for assessing or developing information organization. While at the the University of Colorado, I was funded by an Institutes of Educational Sciences grant to develop automated essay assessment technology for deployment in secondary schools. In addition, I am currently involved in work to develop automated essay assessments of evolution knowledge. The technology is maturing and we have been able to achieve correlations of 96% with human markers when

identifying key evolutionary concepts in students' writing. I would liek to see this work expanded to develop psychology specific assessment technologies.
