Andrew Hampton

M.S., a.b.d.

Andrew studied at the University of Central Florida and the Burnett Honors College on a full National Merit scholarship. After graduating with a B.S. in psychology and a minor in cognitive science, he moved back to his hometown of Cincinnati where he began working as an assistant to Dr. Shalin and Dr. Gilkey on an investigation of spatialized audio technology at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Eventually, Andrew became the lead data collector and authored or co-authored several papers and conference presentations on the project.

Andrew entered the Wright State Human Factors/Industrial Organizational doctoral program in the fall of 2011 and has been working both as a graduate research assistant (investigating social media as a means to facilitate emergency response as part of a National Science Foundation grant) and as a graduate teaching assistant, constructing his own curriculum for a senior Capstone course. In addition, he served as a co-founder of the Professional Development Group, a graduate student organization developed to encourage independent initiatives. He earned the program's Graduate Student Excellence Award in 2014. At the global level, his paper with Dr. Shalin won the 2016 Human Factors Prize for Excellence in Human Factors/Ergonomics Research.

Andrew's research interests include technologically mediated communication, psycholinguistics, cognitive modeling (primarily with ACT-R), and, semiotics, and cognitive systems analysis. In the spring of 2013, the faculty accepted his master's thesis, entitled "Spatialized Audio and Landmarks in Team Navigation". He passed his qualifying exams in late 2014 and has proposed his dissertation research regarding symbol grounding in social media communications.
