Research

As an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality postdoctoral fellow, I am conducting research in Healthcare Human Factors in the Center for Quality and Productivity Improvement with the support of Dr. Pascale Carayon, and in the Living Environments Laboratory, part of the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, with Dr. Patti Brennan.

My Ph.D. thesis was in Cognitive Ergonomics under the guidance of faculty advisor Dr. Yili Liu in the University of Michigan’s Center for Ergonomics.  The primary focus of my thesis was quantifying both the aesthetic ergonomic and physical ergonomic considerations involved in the physical design of hand-held medical devices, and mobile phones. 

My research interests include both physical and cognitive ergonomics, including; aesthetic ergonomic design, multimodal interface design, human computer interface research, automation and robotic interface support, hedonomics, innovation, and related fields.

I am interested in applying my research in a wide variety of domains, such as home healthcare, medical devices, mobile phones, office ergonomics, automotive human factors.

In the past I have conducted research at the University of Rochester in cognitive science, the University of California Ergonomics Program primarily on physical ergonomics, Intel’s digital health division on telemedicine, the US Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) on non-clinical medical device human factors, and the University of Michigan's Stephen M. Ross School of Business on Innovation.
