My research includes a series of experiments investigating the automation of track management in submarines. The research is being conducted in partnership with the Australian Defence Science and Technology Organisation.
I am investigating static, adaptive and adaptable automation and exploring various aspects of the human-machine interaction. These includes how operator workload, situation awareness and performance may vary under fluctuating task-loads, and how individual differences my influence automation use. Individual differences measured are working memory capacity, spatial ability, personality and trust.
This website offers a brief overview of my research. I hope you find it useful.
