Synopsis:My program of research with the AFRL has focused thus far on the impact that trust has on automated system use. I am primarily focusing on what individual characteristics lead to trust in an automated decision aid, and also whether those characteristics can predict how the person uses the system. I have recently begun working with the team and look forward to being involved in many more future research projects.

My research outside of the AFRL has centered around topics related to item response theory (IRT) issues, in particular detection of differential item functioning in multiple contexts. In addition, I am interested in multilevel modeling, job performance, and job satisfaction.
