Ph.D.

Doug Gillan graduated in 1974 from Macalester College with a BA in Psychology and in 1978 with a PhD from the University of Texas at Austin. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Yale University (NSF Fellowship) and the University of Pennsylvania (Sloan Foundation Fellowship). He spent 10 years working in industry -- 4 years at General Foods Research Center (doing taste perception research) and 6 years at Lockheed Engineering and Sciences Company at NASA-JSC (doing human factors research related to the design of Space Station). He has spent the last 20 years working in academic Psychology Departments at Rice University (as a visiting faculty member),the University of Idaho, New Mexico State University, and North Carolina State University where he is currently a Professor and Department Head
