Welcome to the Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making Laboratory (CEDM)!

"The overarching goal is to better understand human cognitive processes in order to inform the design of complex systems. The keywords we use are human factors, human-integrated systems engineering, and data analytics. We develop eye tracking analysis algorithms to investigate visual scanning behaviors, conduct usability tests to evalute existing and new interfaces, and investigate human decision making processes by developing information processing models. The core of our research is in investigating human performance within complex systems, and the human operator or operators can be experts such as air traffic controllers, pilots, weather forecasters, or even oil drillers, or the general public who drive automobiles or use laptops and cell phones. To do so, we go in-depth to pursue knowledge in human factors (cognitive processes aligned with visual perception, workload, signal dection theory, etc.), statistical methods (parametric and non-parametric methods), and data analytics (pattern identification, data visualization, etc.) Human factors, statistical methods, and data analytics do not stand alone, but are interwined to support the analysis of human performance in human-integrated complex systems." - Ziho Kang
