In my research, I model healthcare providers’ (e.g., physicians’ and nurses’) and patients’ cognitive and behavioral interactions with health information technology (IT) as they make decisions about preventing diseases, diagnosing health conditions, managing chronic diseases, and treating acute illnesses. We often use eye-trackers, observations, and interviews to understand where individuals are looking, and what they are doing and thinking as they perform these tasks. These cognitive and behavioral models can objectively guide health IT design and training. My research sits uniquely at the intersection of health informatics, engineering psychology or human factors, and industrial engineering. My research relies heavily on collaborations with physicians, nurses, medical informaticists, and computer scientists.
