Dr. Erickson directs the Ecological Research in Cognitive Operations (ERiCO) Laboratory. His research involves human memory, specifically applying human face recognition to problems related to law and national security interests. Active research programs include investigations into the efficacy of forensic age-progressed images of missing persons, how the human visual system can recognize faces that have aged since their last viewing, and how normal cognitive aging affects eyewitness memory. He is also a frequent contributor to the Popular Culture Psychology book series, examining psychological issues that arise in such franchises as Star Trek, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead.
The courses Dr. Erickson specializes in are History & Systems of Psychology, Lifespan Development, and Research & Statistics for Psychology.
