Ross Flom received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Minnesota in 1992 and 1999, respectively. Following his Ph.D. Ross was a Postdoctoral Trainee at Florida International University where he worked with Dr. Lorraine Bahrick. Following his two-year postdoctoral training Ross joined the Department of Psychology in 2001 at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, USA. He is currently an Associate Professor of psychology and neuroscience. His research focuses on early perceptual and cognitive development in infancy. In one line of research Ross is examining those factors associated with the development of joint visual attention in infancy. A second and more recent area of research focuses on how infants learn to attend to those properties of an event that can be seen as well as heard, as well as infants’ ability to remember multimodal information. Currently he is examining infants’ perception of multimodal information in nonhuman communicative behaviors.
