In short: I study how people interact with and use technology.

In long: As an engineering psychologist, I research human behavior, capabilities, and limitations to inform engineering projects. I design and evaluate technology and systems for maximal effectiveness, including  factors such as reducing user error, fatigue, frustration, and injuries, while increasing user satisfaction, safety, usability, and efficiency.

My experience spans various projects of user-centered design and human systems integration, while my graduate work focuses primarily on instructional design. Some of my current research includes:

  • Feedback via educational technology
  • Design of subgoal labels
  • Use of task analysis techniques to identify what learners need to know
  • Using information from task analyses to design instructional materials
