I’m a Research Fellow at the Future of Work Institute, Curtin University. My research broadly spans human factors, cognitive psychology, and the interaction between people and technological systems. I enjoy solving questions of applied relevency with complex data and robust modelling techniques.
I follow a demand-driven research model, engaging with industry stakeholders to conduct field experiments that concurrently improve workplaces and scientific knowledge. I leverage many statistical and computational approaches. For example, I am currently using machine learning and Bayesian process models to forecast the mental endurance of individuals working in extreme-work contexts.
I also still conduct lab-based simulation research where I apply models of cognitive processes (e.g., prospective memory) to simulations of complex dynamic tasks. My PhD thesis focused on the effects of interruptions on memory in simulated air traffic control.
