RESEARCH

 
Context of Research
CERI conducts research in the context of complex socio-technical systems involving intense cognitive work among teams, such as:

RPA (Remotely Piloted Aircraft) human system integration

UUV (Unmanned Underwater Vehicle) operations

Planning (Military, emergency response)

Extreme Environments

Medical/hospitals

Emergency management

Homeland and Cyber Security

Core Competencies
CERI strives to increase competencies in the following (highly interrelated) areas:

Methods for understanding complex socio-technical systems

Cognitive Task Analysis

Experimentation in field or the design/development of Synthetic (Cognitive) Task Environment

Measurement of team performance, team process, and team cognition (team situation awareness, & team coordination) for assessment, diagnosis, prediction, etc.

Real-time/task-embedded, intermittent, and post-processed

Content-free communications analysis

Empirical understanding of various factors (task, environment, team, and individual) in complex socio-technical systems. For instance:

Training intervention

Team composition

Retention interval

Teamwork experience

Remote/distributed command and control operations

Models of cognitive activity in socio-technical systems

Dynamical Systems Modeling of human/team performance

Intelligent agents as: decision aids, synthetic teammates, system evaluators, supervisors of complex tasks, and task/workload management

Theoretical development in complex socio-technical systems

Team cognition

Team situation awareness

Team expertise/high performing teams

Guidance on applications in complex socio-technical systems

Declutter UAV displays

Intelligent agents
