Stacy arrived at Clemson after having graduated from the University of Iowa. Having had a long-term interest in cars, transportation, and in the science of visual perception, Stacy joined Rick Tyrrell’s lab to study how well drivers see at night and how their night vision affects their ability to drive safely. Among Stacy’s research accomplishments is become a leading expert in drivers’ abilities to see pedestrians at night and how best to make pedestrians conspicuous at night.
Stacy has been a productive researcher, having presented her research at meetings including Human Factors & Ergonomics Society, Transportation Research Board, American Psychological Association, and Vision Sciences Society and having published her research in leading journals. Along the way, Stacy developed into a self-described “stats geek” and she taught statistics and research methods to Clemson students. An unusually gifted Instructor, in 2009 Stacy was awarded both the Graduate Teaching Excellence Award (College of BBS) and the Board of Visitors Graduate Teaching Award (University-level). She was also named the Department’s Outstanding Ph.D. Student in 2008. Upon finishing her Ph.D. in 2010, Dr. Balk accepted a position as a Research Psychologist at SAIC.
