Research Interests

To relate Mind and Matter to better understand What Matters with respect to successful adaptation to the demands of living in sociotechnical systems. In other words, to better understand why I am so clumsy, and why doesn’t technology help more? How to manage many degrees of freedom, whether in a human body or other complex system (e.g., learning to play guitar)? Perceptual-motor skill, manual control, decision-making, cognitive systems engineering, human-machine interface design (particularly in the domains of aviation, medicine, highway safety, learning with disabilities, and virtual reality), and ecological psychology.

- Helen Keller –

 

... the only way to develop curiosity, sympathy, principle, and independence of mind is to practice being curious, sympathetic, principled, and independent. For those of us who are teachers, it isn't what we teach that instills virtue, it's how we teach. We are the books our students read most closely.
- Menand describing Dewey's approach to education –

 

You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
Mark Twain
