In the Ergonomics and Applied Statistics (EASt) Lab we:

Use a wide variety of sophisticated analytical models to quantify operators’ behaviors and performance in complex systems and situations in healthcare and transportation domains.

Develop models that gauge driver injury and crash risk, evaluate human factor issues and strategies for improving health and health care systems, and quantify the effect of technology-based tools on behavior and performance.

Analyze and develop strategies for implementing industrial engineering principles, such as lean and 6 sigma, into complex systems especially health care systems.

We work specifically in the following areas:
