Lisa Durrance Blalock, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Psychology


I am an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of West Florida in the General Psychology program. I received my Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Colorado State University. Before Colorado, I earned my B.S. in Psychology at the University of Central Florida in Orlando where I grew up. 

Currently, I teach Research Methods I, Careers in Psychology, and Sensation & Perception. I have also taught lab courses in cognitive psychology and applied cognitive psychology.

Broadly speaking, my research focuses on how people process visual and spatial information as well as how those processes relate to selective and controlled attention. I am also interested in applied cognition, specifically related to spatial situation awareness. For more information, please visit my Research page or see my Vita here
