GIVA is glad to welcome Dr. Ian Ruginski as new member of the team! Ian is a senior scientist who studies visual perception, navigation, and spatial cognition from an interdisciplinary perspective. He joined us from the University of Utah, where Ian received his PhD in Psychology focusing in Cognition and Neural Science (CNS) and worked as a postdoctoral fellow on the Spatial Cognition and Navigation project. In his empirical work, Ian has investigated different methods of uncertainty visualizations, emotion and spatial learning, and individual differences in spatial cognition. In his recent research, Ian is particularly interested in individual differences in spatial abilities, including how these are affected by geographic information display use.
Ian, we’re thrilled to have you on board !
