Humans, Systems, and Technologies

To be safe and effective, technologies and environments need to be designed with human behavior in mind. For example, health care devices intended for use in homes need to be safe for people to use without professional assistance, and work environments need to be designed in ways that minimize the chances of accidents. Through our studies and workshops, we examine how research on human behavior can inform the design of environments and the development of technologies and systems.  See also:
