Professor & Head of Department of Psychology, Macquarie University (effective August 1, 2017)

Erik D. Reichle, Ph.D.

​I'm currently a Professor and Head of the Department of Psychology at Macquarie University.  My research uses computational modeling, eye-movement experiments, and other methods (e.g., ERP) to understand the perceptual, cognitive, and motor processes involved in reading.  I've authored more than 60 articles on these topics in international journals, including Brain and Behavioral Sciences, Psychological Review, and Psychological Science.  I've also received fellowships from the Hanse Institute of Advanced Studies (Germany) and the Leverhulme Trust (United Kingdom).  My forthcoming book, entitled Computational Models of Reading: A Handbook, provides a comprehensive review of models that are used to understand the mental processes involved in reading.  And when I'm not working, I spend my time traveling the world with my partner and scientific collaborator, Dr. Lili Yu.
