Dr. Susan Chipman is a cognitive psychologist who manages the Cognitive Science Program at the U.S. Office of Naval Research (ONR). The Cognitive Science Program at ONR aims to provide understanding of the human learner and performer of complex skills, such as those required by naval jobs. In addition, the program supports research on the nature of expertise, into the processes of learning that result in such expertise, into theory-based automated methods of training to foster such learning, and into diagnostic methods for testing knowledge and skill. Throughout, the program emphasizes the expression of relevant psychological theories in precise computational terms. The program aims at applications in naval training and -- more recently -- in the design of effective human-system interaction for advanced naval systems.
Before joining ONR, Dr. Chipman was Assistant Director of the U.S. National Institute of Education. There she was responsible for research in cognitive development, mathematics learning, applications of computers to education, and research on social influences on learning and development. As a result of her work there, she has maintained a continuing involvement in research on the participation of women and minorities in mathematics, science, and technology. She is also on the advisory board of the James S. McDonnell Foundation's program of research on the applications of cognitive science to educational practice.
Dr. Chipman earned an AB in Mathematics, an MBA in Managerial Economics, Decision, and Control and an AM and a PhD in Experimental Psychology from Harvard University.
She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, and has edited several books related to the research programs she has managed: Thinking and Learning Skills; Women and Mathematics: Balancing the Equation; Knowledge Acquisition; and Cognitively Diagnostic Assessment.
