Aspects of my research, conducted in conjunction with co-researchers and numerous UB students, focus on supporting human performance in complex systems, by modeling aspects of human-machine interaction and by analyzing and designing tasks, training interventions, and information aids and displays. Projects have addressed decision making under uncertainty, developing models of complex systems, analyzing the role of technology in work systems, and conducting field studies of complex, cooperative work environments.
Funding for the projects has been provided by numerous sources including the National Science Foundation, Agency for Healthcare Research on Quality (AHRQ); Emergency Medicine Foundation; Department of Homeland Security; Charles River Analytics; US Airforce Research Labs (Human Effectiveness Directorate), Sarnoff Corporation/NIMA, Logicon Technical Services, and CUBRC (Calspan-UB Research Corporation).
