Ben Clegg is a Professor of Cognitive Psychology in the Department of Psychology 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. The focus of my basic research is on sequencing and sequence learning, including implicit learning.
