About the Author:

ROBERT S. FELDMAN is a professor of psychology at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, where he is Director of Undergraduate Studies and recipient of the College Outstanding Teacher Award. He was educated as an undergraduate at Wesleyan University, from which he graduated with High Honors, and received a M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

Among his more than 100 books, chapters, articles, and presentations, he has written Development Across the Life Span, edited Development of Nonverbal Behavior in Children (Springer-Verlag), Applications of Nonverbal Behavioral Theory and Research (Erlbaum), and coedited Fundamentals of Nonverbal Behavior (Cambridge University Press). He is the recipient of grants from the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute of the Disabilities and Rehabilitation Research, which have supported his research on the development of nonverbal behavior in children. A past Fulbright lecturer and research scholar, he is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and American Psychological Society.

During the course of nearly two decades as a college instructor, he has taught both undergraduate and graduate courses at Mount Holyoke College, Wesleyan University, Virginia Commonwealth University, in addition to the University of Massachusetts.

Professor Feldman is an avid, if not particularly accomplished, pianist, and an excellent cook, despite his children's aversion to his experimentation with exotic cuisine. He lives with his three children and wife, a psychologist, in Amherst, Massachusetts, in a home overlooking the Holyoke mountain range.
