    Associate Professor

    I am an Associate Professor of Cognitive Ergonomics in the Department of Kinesiology and hold adjunct appointments in Civil Engineering and Psychology. I leverage my background in cognitive science to understand how attention functions during the human interaction with machines. While the bulk of my research applies to road transportation and vehicle automation, I also explore the Cognitive Ergonomics factors at play in the human interaction with a broader range of systems. As co-founder of Red Rock Human Factors Consulting, I offer consulting services on legal cases involving human factors, human error, distracted driving and transportation safety.

    Associate Professor

    I am an Assistant professor at the University of Windsor in the Dept of Electrical and Computer Engineering. My research expertise is in developing algorithms for autonomous systems, namely, cyber-physical systems, cyber-human systems, and human-physical systems (also known as human-machine systems). I also work with students on human computer interaction, cognitive context detection using psycho-physiological measurements (especially, eye-tracking measurements), and optimal task reallocation in human-machine systems.
