He collaborates with military organizations as well as professional and amateur sport clubs. Ric has expertise in experimental psychology and applied education interventions focused within human factors and cognitive engineering in cyber domains, where he researched the interaction of individual aspects of human behavior (microcognition), incorporating concepts such as self-efficacy, resilience, metacognition, and naturalistic environments (macrocognition). Ric has published numerous articles in scientific journals. Ric also incorporates performance predictors such as time–pressure, risk, ambiguity, and intuitive decision-making. He developed applied education interventions that focus on accelerated learning in both sports and military contexts.
