Human Factors and Applied Cognition
Raul Ramirez is a fourth year doctoral student in the Human Factors and Applied Cognition program at George Mason University. He received his Bachelor of Science in psychology from the University of Alabama in 2011. Raul is currently working with Dr. Tyler Shaw on projects focusing on vigilance, workload transitions, and the use of Transcranial Doppler Sonography to measure mental workload in humans.
