Human Factors is a field that examines how people interact with technology. Use of technology can promote physical and mental health. I am working on several projects examining how new technology can increase heath and well-being.
1. Low Vision project -- evaluate tools/techniques to display information to low vision users
2. Accessibility of E-textbooks project -- evaluate the accessibility of electronic textbooks and their level usability for persons with disabilities
3. Non-verbal and Pictorial displays for conveying Information--examines how well people can interpret non-verbal (i.e., symbols) and pictorial displays that are used to inform users about how to take medicine or extract information about what they are eating.
4. Aviation human factors -- examine new concepts and technologies for aviation (including workload analyses).
