Dr. Rick Bryck received his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Oregon. His graduate work centered on the study of executive function (EF) using both behavioral and neuroscience methodologies. His current interests revolve around understanding disparities in EF, as well as testing the efficacy of interventions and programs aimed at enhancing EF. Bryck has served as the principal investigator on grants exploring an in-home cognitive training program for low income children, the well-being and academic effects of resilience training for college students with learning differences (LD), and as a program evaluator on a NSF funded project providing STEM mentoring for students with LD. Bryck has presented professional learning workshops on executive functioning, long-term memory and educational techniques for enhancing learning.
