Research & Service

My research focuses on cognition, communication, and other aspects of human performance in complex task domains such as health care and aviation, with a focus on aging and performance. Current projects investigate the impact of health literacy (and cognition more broadly) on older adults’ comprehension of information needed for self-management of chronic illness, as well as how to leverage information technology to support patient/provider communication and self-care among older adults with chronic illness.

I teach courses related to how human performance and cognition influence how people interact with technology. Currently, I am teaching EPSY 456 (Human Performance and Cognition in Context), which is cross-listed with the Psychology and the ISE departments.


Human Perform & Cogn in Contxt Theories and findings from cognitive science and related disciplines concerning human information processing mechanisms and capacities are covered, with an emphasis on how understanding people's perceptual and cognitive strengths and limitations can inform decisions about teaching/training strategies and designing technological environments to suit people's needs and abilities. Course Information: Same as AVI 456, IE 445, and PSYC 456. 3 undergraduate hours. 4 graduate hours. Prerequisite: PSYC 100 or PSYC 103 or consent of instructor.
