He then took on his current position as a Conradi eminent scholar at Florida State University.
Notably, Dr. Ericsson was invited to work with Herbert Simon, the recipient of the Nobel Prize one year after he arrived in Pittsburgh and his one year spent studying at the Center for Advanced Study at Stamford University was one the highlights of his career. Dr. Ericsson is the author of “Protocol Analysis,” “Peak: Secrets from New Science of Expertise,” and is the editor of “Development Of Professional Expertise: Toward Measurement Of Expert Performance And Design Of Optimal Learning Environments,” among other titles. In order to maintain his knowledge in the field, he is an active member of the Association Psychological Science, the American Psychological Association, and the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences.
