Dr. Jonathan Gallimore is an Assistant Professor in the Behavioral and Safety Sciences Department at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Prescott campus) with expertise in research methods, statistical analyses, cognitive psychology, and experimental psychology. His research interests focus on the psychological concepts related to various modes of transportation (e.g., airplanes, cars, and pedestrians). In 2007, Dr Gallimore received his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Utah with a Human Factors Certificate. For two and a half years, he was a research assistant in two different labs. As an undergraduate, Dr. Gallimore presented his research about the impact of cell phone use on pedestrians at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research (NCUR) and the Utah Conference for Undergraduate Research (UCUR). In 2009, Dr. Gallimore earned a Master’s degree in Human Development and Social Policy from the University of Utah, and his research focused on the environmental barriers that prevented children from walking to school. In 2013, Dr. Gallimore received his PhD in Experimental Psychology from Washington State University (Pullman campus), and his research focused on action representation, action execution, action planning, and the connection between perception and action.
