My research focuses on understanding human multitasking — how people manage (or struggle) to perform multiple tasks at the same time. I am especially interested in multitasking in the context of driving and driver distraction. Most of my work uses computational cognitive models to represent and simulate thoughts and behaviors.

The Research page provides an overview of my work in each of these areas. My publications, biography, and curriculum vitae are also available online.


My primary teaching interests include human-computer interaction, human factors, and cognitive systems. The Teaching page links to syllabi from some of my recent courses.

In Fall 2013 I am teaching CS 530: Developing User Interfaces.
