Human Factors and Applied Cognition

Molly is a fourth year doctoral student in the Human Factors & Applied Cognition Program. Awarded a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship in 2015, she is currently working under Dr. Deborah Boehm-Davis in the Applied Performance Research Laboratory. Her primary interest is on investigating the cognitive processes that influence idea generation and design fixation within individuals. She has previously worked with Dr. Eva Wiese on understanding the role physical design plays in attributing a mind to a robotic agent and with Dr. Robert Youmans on looking at individual differences in cognitive flexibility when it comes to reactive task set switching.
