QIC is thrilled to announce that Dr. Amanda van Lamsweerde has joined our growing team as a Research Psychologist! Dr. van Lamsweerde has 10 years of experience conducting research in human cognition and cognitive neuroscience. She has expertise in perception, attention, and memory and has conducted research in these topics using a variety of methodologies, including: measuring behavior, monitoring eye movements, monitoring brain activity through electroencephalogram (EEG), and non-invasive brain stimulation with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). She has a Ph.D. and M.A. in Cognitive Psychology from Louisiana State University and a B.A. in Psychology from the University of California, Irvine. She has worked on projects investigating visual attention with the Naval Research Laboratory, identified neural markers of knowledge transfer, and developed research to create more efficient materials to improve sleep behaviors. Her research interests include the interaction between perception, attention, working memory, and long-term memory, with the purpose of developing solutions to problems rooted in human cognitive demands and limitations, in order to improve task performance as well as overall health. Dr. van Lamsweerde and her expertise will be a tremendous asset to QIC as we continue to grow and seek out and win new work. Welcome!
