    Research Areas
     Human-computer interaction/human factors, computational modeling, cognitive psychology, statistics
     
    Lab Overview
     The main theme of the research at CHIL is "Cognitive Science applied to human-computer interaction (HCI)." Our research is concerned with the psychological processes underlying the interaction of people with man-made systems, particularly computer systems, with the ultimate goal of developing engineering models of human performance that can aid in the design of real-world systems. This work spans a broad spectrum of investigation, from the most coarse explorations of users' work environments (e.g. what are the tasks people perform?) to detailed analysis of the temporal microstructure of human performance (e.g. what eye movements do people make when they select from simple menus?).
