Research Overview

Bringing together the fields of computer sciences, vision science, neuroscience, and experimental psychology to bear on the problem of human performance breakdown under conditions of risk and stress, my research focuses on investigating how cognitive design principles could be used to develop predictive models of human-computer interaction applicable to the design of mission-critical and safety-critical systems run under such conditions. My current research continues this investigation.

The research objectives are to discover design principles, define interaction design requirements, and instantiate both in interactive design tools that acknowledge users’ information-processing constraints under conditions of risk and stress, in order to support optimal performance in the execution of perceptual-motor tasks without unnecessarily increasing cognitive load and the probability of critical errors.
