M. Jackson (Jack) Marr received the BS degree in 1961 from Georgia Tech, where he studied mathematics, physics, and psychology He received a Ph.D. in experimental psychology with a minor in physiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1966. He is Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Georgia Tech, where he has taught courses in the experimental analysis of behavior, physiology and behavior, behavioral pharmacology, and probability and statistics. He is one of five founding Fellows of ABAI, a Fellow of Division 25 of APA, and past president of both ABAI and Division 25. He has been editor of Behavior and Philosophy, review editor of the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, co-editor of Revista Mexicana de Análisis de la Conducta, and associate editor of the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior and The Behavior Analyst. He was experimental representative to the Executive Council of ABAI, served on the board of directors of the Society for the Quantitative Analyses of Behavior (SQAB), and served on the board of trustees of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies. He has been active in the international support and development of behavior analysis in Europe, Mexico, China, and the Middle East. He was a research fellow in pharmacology at Harvard Medical School, a visiting professor at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and an Eminent Scholar at Jacksonville State University. He was a Navy contractor for Project Sanguine in a study of possible behavioral effects of extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields. As an AIEE Senior Fellow at the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory, he conducted research on the effects of microwaves as reinforcers of operant behavior and the effects of stimulant drugs on sustained military flight performance. His primary current research interests include the development of instructional systems for teaching engineering physics, dynamical systems theory, the quantitative analysis of behavior, comparative behavior analysis at Zoo Atlanta, assessment methods for engineering and science education, and theoretical/conceptual issues in behavioral analysis.
