Karen Sanchez




I am currently a student at California State University, Long Beach, in the Master's of Science Psychology program with an Option in Human Factors. I plan for a career in Human Factors to improve the efficiency of systems and products for the user. My current interests consist of aviation, automotive, usability, and user experience.

I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree at California State University Long Beach, majoring in Psychology.

I also work as a research assistant at the Center for Human Factors in Advanced Aeronautics Technologies (CHAAT), a NASA Group 5 University Research Center (URC). In CHAAT we do research on human performance in complex systems such as the Next Generation Airspace Transportation System (NextGen).

In my freetime I like to run, hike, play volleyball, draw, and treat myself.
