Welcome to the Human Performance, Assessment and Modeling (HPAM) Laboratory

What do we do ?

We in the Human Performance, Assessment and Modeling Laboratory (HPAM) are focused on the understanding of operator goals, abilities, and constraints in the context of dynamic task environments such as command-and-control and supervisory control. HPAM Research areas form a mutually-supporting triad with human-in-the-loop simulations informing the development of inductive inference models which are validated through empirical work grounded in cognitive science principles. Our research tools include discrete-event simulations, evolutionary computation methods, statistical inference techniques, and opportunistic reasoning techniques.
