Research Focus

My research interests include human attention, spatial cognition, and applications of these fundamental findings to human-computer interaction. On the theoretical side, my research investigates how human attend to information on a wide field of view, individual differences and age-related changes on attentional and spatial skills, as well as how cognitive training improve the skills. On the practical aspect, I link these theoretical findings to human driving performance and interface design.
