ADL Leadership



Scotty Craig

Craig is an Associate Professor in the Human Systems Engineering Program within the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at ASU. His goal is to provide cutting-edge research at the intersection of human cognition, technology, and the learning sciences which provides solutions to real-world problems within education and training. His current research focuses on improving learning with higher-level cognition factors such as comprehension, discourse, and cognitive-affective states through the use of virtual humans within technological environments. Education: Ph.D., Experimental Psychology (Cognitive), The University of Memphis.
