Biography

Dan Morrow received his Ph.D. (Cognitive Psychology) from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1982. He is a professor at the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Illinois, and a part-time faculty member in the Beckman Institute Human Perception and Performance group. His fields of professional interest are cognitive aging and human factors related to communication in complex tasks.

Honors

Editor:  Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 8; Associate Editor: Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied (2009-2013); Editorial Board: Psychology & Aging (2003-2007); NIH/NRSA Postdoctoral Fellowship (1983-1984).

Research

Expertise and aging in pilot performance:
Dr. Morrow is investigating conditions under which pilot expertise helps offset age-related declines in cognitive abilities, so that older pilots maintain high levels of performance on piloting tasks related to communication, comprehension, and decision-making. We find that expertise is most likely to mitigate age declines when the task provides domain-relevant environmental support for pilots, such as taking notes while listening to complex Air Traffic Control messages.

Health communication:
The goal of this project is to improve the design of health materials in order to increase older adults' comprehension of self-care tasks. In a clinical trial, Dr. Morrow is collaborating with pharmacists and physicians to investigate whether well-designed written instructions (as part of a pharmacist-based educational intervention) improve medication adherence and health outcomes among patients with heart disease.

Both projects are funded by NIH.
