Research Lab

The Human Factors & Cognitive Engineering Lab brings together a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, engineers, psychologists, computer scientists and educators, including collaborations with several scientists and institutions, nationally and internationally. The core mission of our research lab involves the use of cutting-edge technologies to understand and improve clinicians’ performance, with the ultimate goal of enhance patient safety and improve clinical outcomes. Our research projects have been funded by NASA and NIH (R01) and use innovative methodologies, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, and digital biomarkers captured through wearable physiological sensors.
