Elizabeth (Betsy) Fox, M.S.

Wright State University - Graduate Student

Elizabeth L. Fox (M.S., 2015, Wright State University) is a graduate student in the Human Factors and Industrial Organizational Psychology program at Wright State University.  In the Mathematical Modeling Laboratory of Dr. Joseph Houpt she uses mathematical models to assess the cognitive properties of multispectral fused imagery and multi-modal redundant signals. Her dissertation research involves the measurement of mental workload in a multi-tasking environment using psychophysiological indices and the capacity coefficient.

Wright State University - Graduate Student

Joe Glavan is a graduate student at Wright State University majoring in Human Factors and Industrial/Organizational Psychology. He received his B.S. in Cognitive Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2013. His research interests include using mathematical and computational cognitive models to study how humans interact with human, machine, and ecological systems; combining multiple sources of information to make complex decisions. His current projects involve using Systems Factorial Technology (SFT) to study how humans use color and shape in visual search tasks.

Assaf Harel, Ph.D.

Wright State University - Assistant Professor

Dr. Harel is a cognitive neuroscientist investigating the neural basis of visual recognition. He is particularly interested in how visual recognition occurs in real-world settings and adopts a neuroergonomic approach to study the applied aspects of high-level vision. His research interests include visual expertise, object and scene recognition, perceptual categorization, attention, and top-down control.

Joseph W Houpt, Ph.D.

Wright State University - Assistant Professor

Joseph W. Houpt (Ph.D., 2012, Indiana University) is an assistant professor of psychology at Wright State University.  His research utilizes mathematical models of cognition and perception to assess human performance. His current AFOSR-funded research applies SFT to model the perception of static and dynamic multispectral fused imagery, and to model the processing mechanisms with 3D perception.  He further collaborates with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) on rational analysis modeling of visual search and target identification.
