Uta Wolfe completed her B.A. in Psychology and her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Minnesota and her postdoctoral training at New York University. Prior to her current position at UST, Wolfe was a non-tenure track assistant professor at St. Olaf College in Minnesota. Her current academic interests include multi-sensory integration (the interaction between the senses) and visuo-motor control (the way our movements are guided by vision). Her research is currently funded by the National Institutes of Health (National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke) and has been published in periodicals such as Journal of Neuroscience, Journal of Neurophysiology and Perception and Psychophysics. Her recent discovery of a new multi-sensory illusion, first published in Perception and Psychophysics, has also been featured on several popular science blogs, such as The Cognitive Daily.
