Reinhold Kliegl is professor of experimental psychology at the University of Potsdam, Germany. His research focuses on how the dynamics of language-related, perceptual, and oculomotor processes subserve attentional control, using reading, spatial attention, and working memory tasks as experimental venues; he also examines neural correlates and age-related differences in these processes. His research has been carried out in interdisciplinary projects with colleagues from linguistics as well as from theoretical physics and mathematics. He is speaker of the psychology review panel of Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, a member of the Editorial Board of Psychological Review, and a member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences. In 2002 he received the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize of Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
