Dario Salvucci is a Professor of Computer Science at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. He received a B.S.E. from Princeton University in 1994 and a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in 1999, both in Computer Science. His work in the areas of cognitive science, human factors, and human-computer interaction focuses on computational models of human cognition and behavior, with particular emphasis on multitasking and driving. His recent book The Multitasking Mind (with Niels Taatgen) describes a new theory for how people manage multiple tasks in everyday situations. Dr. Salvucci has received a number of awards including the National Science Foundation CAREER Award, the Drexel College of Engineering Outstanding Teaching Award, the Fred Burggraf Prize at the Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting, and the Siegel-Wolf Prize at the International Conference on Cognitive Modeling. He has also served on the Franklin Institute Committee on Science and the Arts and the editorial boards of ACM ToCHI, Human Factors, and Psychological Review.
