Dr. Bryck’s work centers on the study of executive function (EF), including understanding disparities in EF, and testing the efficacy of interventions, programs, and strategies aimed at enhancing EF. He has served as an investigator on grants exploring: a cognitive training program for low income children, the well-being and academic effects of resilience training for neurodivergent college students, and the effects of metacognitive and EF scaffolds in math problem solving. He also serves as the campus lead on a National Science Foundation project providing STEM mentoring for students with disabilities. Rick regularly presents professional learning workshops on EF and educational techniques for enhancing learning.
