Human Factors and Applied Cognition
Brian is a fourth year Ph.D student working with Dr. Raja Parasuraman on research concerning automation and supervisory control of autonomous vehicles. He received his B.S. in Aviation Human Factors at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in May of 2008 and his M.A. in Human Factors and Applied Cognition from George Mason University in May of 2012. His research interests include aviation human factors, supervisory control, flexible automation, and individual differences in automation.
