Steffen Werner received his undergraduate and graduate education in mathematics and experimental psychology at the University of Goettingen, Germany. As a post-doctoral researcher at Prof. Molly Potter’s lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology he investigated visual attention and memory. After his return to the University of Goettingen, Steffen worked on questions related to human spatial cognition and navigation. In 2000 he joined the University of Idaho’s department of psychology and its human factors graduate program. His main current research interests focus on both applied questions like the design of in-car map displays, general automotive user interfaces, situation awareness in process control, and new password systems, and basic questions regarding visual and spatial cognition. He has also created the website www.gocognitive.net, which is intended to provide educational resources for educators and students in the field of cognitive neuroscience.
