Dan Morrow is a professor at the Department of Educational Psychology (Division of Cognitive Science in Teaching and Learning) and co-chair of the Human-Computer Intelligent Interaction research theme at the Beckman Institute, at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He also has appointments in the Psychology department and the Industrial and Enterprise Engineering department at UIUC. 

His research focuses on cognition, communication, and other aspects of human performance in complex task domains such as health care and aviation, with a focus on aging and performance.
