Peter Pirolli

I am currently a Research Fellow in the Interactive Intelligence Area at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), where I’ve been pursuing studies of human information interaction since 1991. Before joining PARC, I was a Professor in the School of Education at UC Berkeley. I received my doctorate in cognitive psychology from Carnegie Mellon University in 1985.  I received a B.Sc. in psychology and anthropology from Trent University. I have been elected as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Psychological Association, the Association for Psychological Science, the National Academy of Education, and the ACM Computer-Human Interaction Academy. Please see my  book titled “Information Foraging Theory: Adaptive Interaction with Information.” I’m currently an Associate Editor for Human Computer Interaction.
