Randall W. Engle received his Ph.D. in 1973 from Ohio State University, where his mentor was D.D. Wickens. Following a 21 year tenure at the University of South Carolina, he moved to Atlanta, where he took the position of Professor and Chair of the School of Psychology at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He has published numerous papers and book chapters exploring the properties of attention and working memory capacity and their relationship to intelligence. Together with faculty colleagues across the globe, the Engle team, including former doctoral students and post docs, continues to pursue the nature of working memory capacity using micro-analytic experimental studies and macro-analytic factor analysis studies.
