Research interests

OPTIMISING HUMAN TASK PERFORMANCE USING COGNITIVE ENGINEERING AS A TOOL TO IMPROVE TECHNOLOGY AND EDUCATION

My research interests lie in optimising human task performance, especially in medical tasks. I do this by applying cognitive science theory and models to real-life tasks.

My research area is called Cognitive Engineering. The term Cognitive Engineering was introduced in 1986 by Donald Norman: “It is a type of cognitive science, trying to apply what is known from science to the design and construction of machines.” Cognitive Engineering is at the intersection of Cognitive Psychology, studying cognition, Cognitive Science, building computational models of cognition, and Human Factors, which studies the effects of cognitive and psychological limitations on human task performance.

In my research I apply Cognitive Engineering to the domain of patient safety: improving (medical) technology by developing better medical devices and improving medical learning, especially of medical skill education.
