Ben Clegg is a Professor of Cognitive Psychology in the Department of Psychology at Montana State University. Prior to moving to MSU, I was a professor at Colorado State University.


Current research:

I conduct research investigating a variety of aspects of human performance and cognitive engineering, particularly how to apply principles from cognitive psychology and engineering psychology to real-world tasks and skills. My work examines issues such as training and the use of automation. Read more about some of the themes on my research page.
