Timothy Clausner is a visiting assistant research scientist in UMIACS and a member of the Human-Computer Interaction Lab. He is also affiliated with the Department of Psychology's Cognitive Neuroscience Group and the Department of Computer Science's MCL group.

Clausner’s research focuses on issues of meaning representation and cognitive processes in language, vision, action, and human computer interaction. He studies how people make sense of words, graphs, scenes, and interactive devices by using multiple empirical methods, particularly controlled experiments. A distinctive aspect of his contributions to cognitive science is the linking of cognitive semantic theory with perceptual/sensory processes, contributing to both theory and technology applications.

His research has been funded by NSF, DARPA, ARDA/iARPA, and while at HRL Labs from Boeing, General Motors, and Raytheon.
