Professor & Head of Department of Psychology, Macquarie University

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), the Leverhulme Trust (United Kingdom), and the National 1,000 Talents Award (China).  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.  When I'm not working, I spend my time traveling the world with my partner and scientific collaborator, Dr. Lili Yu.
