Making Technology More User-friendly
Dr. Melody Carswell, a professor of psychology and associate director of the Vis Center, explores the relationship between humans and technology.
Chernobyl, the Deepwater Horizon, the Titanic... each name is associated with disaster - and human error - and UK psychologist Melody Carswell wants to examine each accident from a unique investigative perspective. In her class, A&S 300-003, "Disaster: The Human Factor," students will learn how principles of cognitive psychology can be used to identify and reduce both extraordinary and everyday errors.
Students, as well as A&S faculty members Chris Crawford (Physics) and Melody Carswell (Psychology) talk about the undergraduate research opportunities at UK.
