Roberta Klatzky is Professor of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University, where
she is also on the faculty of the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition and the
Human-Computer Interaction Institute. She received a B.S. in mathematics from the
University of Michigan and a Ph.D. in experimental psychology from Stanford University.
Before coming to Carnegie Mellon, she was a member of the faculty at the University of
California, Santa Barbara.
Klatzky's research interests are in human perception and cognition, with special
emphasis on spatial cognition and haptic perception. She has done extensive research
on human haptic and visual object recognition, navigation under visual and nonvisual
guidance, and perceptually guided action. Her work has application to navigation aids
for the blind, haptic interfaces, exploratory robotics, teleoperation, and virtual environments.
Professor Klatzky is the author of over 200 articles and chapters, and she has authored or
edited 6 books.
