Daniel J. Hannon
Ph.D., Sc.M. (Experimental Psychology), Brown University, 1991, 1987
As a professor of the practice, Dr. Hannon is engaged in the 'practice' of human factors engineering in industry, and also collaborates on research projects on campus. Presently, his work is focused in multiple areas, including transportation human factors, medical product design, educational technology, team performance, and the use of technology in mental health practice. His work includes system design, integration and analysis, as well as empirical investigation, human-in-the-loop simulation, and the modeling of human performance. His wider interests include visual perception, product design, cognitive systems engineering, universal design and assistive technology. As an educator, Dr. Hannon is particularly interested in the development of methods for teaching human factors engineering at the undergraduate and graduate levels and in the creation of learning opportunities for students. He is currently is serving as the Director of the Human Factors Program at Tufts.
The Human Factors and Applied Cognitive Systems Engineering Laboratory
The Human Factors and Applied Cognitive Systems Engineering Laboratory at Tufts University was established in the 2009-10 academic year. This facility provides undergraduate and graduate students in the Engineering Psychology program the opportunity to engage in a variety of human factors research activities. The lab includes equipment for supporting student research into ergonomics and biomechanics, psychophysical measurement, anthropometry, vehicle simulation, visual display design, usability testing, and team performance. The lab is utilized in several of the courses in the Engineering Psychology program and is available for student use on independent study projects, senior design projects, and graduate student theses.
