I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Cognitive Engineering Center at the School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Tech. I believe that cognitive engineering, which focuses on designing complex interactions of humans and technology, can be the foundation for governing those same complex interactions — and I am committed to realizing that dream.
My PhD work explored how to understand and support military command and control in degraded and denied information environments, and now I examine how to translate cognitive engineering principles into foundations for governing technologies dependent on interaction with humans — which, honestly, is all of them (robots, AI, computers, airplanes, UAVs, etc.).
I lead teams with big dreams, have a tendency to rally people behind causes, can play the part of coder and mathematician, run human-subject experiments, and work to help society balance technological innovation with our laws and morals.
